Various parts of Africa have become transit points for the global trade in illicit drugs. As a result, an increasing number of people across the continent are becoming involved in the trade, and are using illegal drugs themselves. This event presents new research from the ENACT programme about the growing heroin trade pervading Africa’s East Coast, a comprehensive analysis of Africa’s drug policy, and how criminal intelligence analysis can be used to tackle organised crime in Africa.
The ENACT programme (Enhancing African capacity to respond more effectively to transnational organised crime) is implemented by the Institute for Security Studies (ISS) and INTERPOL, in partnership with the Global Initiative Against Transnational Organised Crime (GI).
