How to stop crime from becoming a catalyst of national and global insecurity.

Organized crime has become a threat to international peace and security. It fuels and benefits from conflict, it undermines development, it can capture governance, and it profits from the plunder of the planet.  Despite the wide-ranging impact of organized crime, it is insufficiently understood and analyzed. Furthermore, policy-makers often don’t know how to prevent or address it.

This course, offered jointly by GCSP and the Global Initiative against Transnational Organized Crime, explains the impact of organized crime on security policy, and explores what to do about it.

Who should attend?

This course is ideal for people engaged in security policy who could benefit from a better understanding of the impact of organized crime on governance, international relations, development, conflict, criminal justice and the environment. It is targeted at practitioners and analysts with a diplomatic, law enforcement, military, development, civil society, humanitarian or development background.
