Organized crime

How can transnational organized crime networks be stopped from becoming more powerful and sophisticated global enterprises?

 

Short Overview

Transnational organized crime (TOC) is estimated to get twice the income of all military budgets combined per year. Distinctions among organized crime, insurgency, and terrorism have begun to blur, giving new markets for organized crime and increasing threats to democracies, development, and scrutiny. The world has started to wake up to the enormity of this evolving phenomenon, but has yet to adopt a global integrated strategy to counter organized crime as a complex set of systems. However, the new INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation (IGCI) that opened in April 2015 in Singapore might address this need. The IGCI is a global center for policy, research, training for the identification of crimes and criminals, operational support, and partnerships.
