Programs

The Global Initiative has created various building blocks made up of more focused thematic and regional strategies to build a global strategy on transnational organized crime. These Programs promote a strategic and coordinated approach to counter organized crime through facilitating the development of interlocking national, regional and international strategies across a range of sectors and criminal markets. These strategies are owned and embedded within existing structures, institutions and organizations that are critical to translating strategy into impactful implementation on the ground.
