2020 marked the start of a global pandemic and the world’s first 24-hour virtual conference on global organized crime, #OC24. Since then, four editions of OC24 have taken place, bringing together researchers and practitioners from all over the world at a scale and in a way that a physical conference cannot match.

With various and innovative session formats, the previous four editions of #OC24 in 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023 attracted more than 10 000 participants worldwide. As with the previous iterations of OC24, this year’s conference will bring together 320+ leading organized crime scholars and practitioners from over a dozen countries to present and discuss a wide range of topics, including human trafficking, drug trafficking, cybercrime, corruption, and the impact of climate change on organized crime worldwide.
