Author: Global Initiative against Transnational Organised Crime

April 20th, 2017

We are pleased to share the Annual Report of the Global Initiative for 2016, which summarises the activities undertaken by the organisation, and attempts to highlight some of the achievements and impact that the Global Initiative could be said to have had over the past year. 2016 was an important year for the organisation, consolidating our continued rapid expansion and extension of reach. With the Sustainable Development Goals now approved, including a target dedicated to ending organized crime, it has never been more important that a more nuanced, creative and diverse response to be employed to counter the threat that organized crime represents to human security and the integrity of states. Our mandate – to work towards the building blocks of a global strategy to counter transnational crime – has become increasingly pertinent. We advance using both thematic and geographic approaches, undertaking catalytic research, analysing, supporting policy development and piloting innovative responses, and it has been rewarding to see this approach gain traction. On some of the most pressing contemporary organized crime and illicit trade issues, the Global Initiative has come to the fore as a pre-eminent source of expertise. Thanks to all who have supported our work.
