Transnational organized crime flourished as a by-product of the globalization that began to emerge in the 1990s. Over the last 30 years, criminal markets have expanded and become adept at working across markets and linking up globally.

These changes are harming governance, the rule of law, democracy, the environment, sustainable development, and health; they are widening gender inequality and fueling instability in conflict zones, border areas and urban neighborhoods.

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought into sharper focus these and other underlying trends that were evident before the crisis and has spawned new opportunities for organized crime.

In Latin America and the Caribbean, the problems are vast and challenging. GI-TOC seeks to contribute, collaborate and be a part of the solutions from within the community, with a local perspective, jointly with activists, civil society, journalists, academia, public institutions, and private sector.

This Dialogue will provide an opportunity for stakeholders from different countries and sectors to come together and exchange experiences, enriching the debate on public security and fostering better practices both among state and non-state actors.

What we are looking for?

To promote an international dialogue on policies and practices related to violence and organized crime across policymakers, security agencies, civil society organizations, experts and journalists

To Identify new regional challenges in the fight against organized crime considering the perspective of civil society, academia and governments and law enforcement institutions.

To showcase community resilience experiences and their contribution to counter organized Crime.
