Global Initiative recently published two [OF 13] discussion papers on global criminal markets.
The Global Initiative is an independent civil-society organisation headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, with a globally dispersed Secretariat and a high-level advisory board.
Its network members include prominent law-enforcement, governance and development practitioners who seek new and innovative strategies and responses to organised crime.
Global Initiative has recently published, along with its introduction, two [of 13] excellent discussion papers: -
- - Using seizure data to measure the scope and scale of organised crime.
- - Measuring the scope and scale of illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing.
These are the first of 13 to focus on defining and measuring various transnational criminal markets. The 13 discussion papers that focus on defining and measuring criminal markets will be published on this page between April and September 2023 as a prelude to the launch of the second iteration of the Global Organized Crime Index. Subscribe to the OCIndex mailing list to get regular updates on the project.
