The Civil Society Observatory of Illicit Economies in Eastern and Southern Africa is a network of civil society activists, researchers and journalists working across the region, coordinated by GI-TOC and with hubs in Nairobi and Cape Town. The Observatory was launched in 2019 and aims to map and analyse criminal trends and illicit flows in the region through regular reporting in our Risk Bulletin, through political economy analyses and surveys of illicit economies across the region.
