The North America Strategic Platform on Organized Crime is a collaborative initiative led by the GI-TOC in partnership with the University of Toronto’s Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy. The Platform is dedicated to addressing the evolving challenges posed by transnational organized crime in the North American context, with a primary focus on Canada, the United States, and Mexico.

Recognizing the need for timely and policy-relevant research in this domain, as well as the urgency for heightened collaboration between academia and government, the Platform has set forth the following objectives:

  • Monitor, document, investigate, and analyze the evolving landscape of organized crime in the region
  • Contribute to informed policy discussions by providing rigorous research and analysis
  • Establish a network to facilitate collaboration, information exchange, and strategic dialogue among stakeholders
  • Bridge the gap between academics and practitioners through the facilitation of conferences, workshops, and networking events
  • Provide bespoke executive education opportunities, including immersive expert-led training courses, aimed at professionals and organizations seeking to deepen their understanding of various facets of organized crime, such as human trafficking, anti-money laundering and illicit financial flows.
