The Crime-Development Paradox: Organised Crime and the SDGs in Africa
Organised crime presents a manifold threat to sustainable development. This is recognised by theSustainable Development Goals and Agenda 2063....
UN-TOC Watch is a new project from the Global Initiative that seeks to monitor and analyze how the UN System is responding to organized crime.
The blog will address key issues that have emerged from ongoing discussions hosted by the Global Initiative on the relationship between organized crime and development. These include how organized crime is addressed through the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, how the UN Convention against Transnational Organized Crime is being implemented, and issues of peacekeeping and coherence of response across the UN System.
UNTOC Watch aims to support the UN System, so that it can respond more systematically to threats posed by organized crime and help mitigate its impact in the areas of conflict and violence, the environment, migration and cyberspace.
