The Organized Crime Index found that of all continents Asia has the highest levels of criminality. It also showed that state actors are the most dominant agents in facilitating illicit economies and inhibiting resilience to organized crime.
On 6 October 2022, the FCCT will discuss with members of the GI-TOC these as well as other key findings of the global Organized Crime Index. We will dig deeper into the results for the Mekong Subregion and other recent research on the cyber-slavery scams and environmental crime along the Mekong River as well as examine the challenges of researching and measuring organized crime. We will also discuss what role civil society can play in strengthening resilience to organized crime and what more can be done to support media, NGOs and academia throughout the region.
