Assessing South Africa's organised crime risk

2022-09-21

Organised crime poses a substantial threat to South Africa, but what is the exact nature of the threat, how do criminal networks operate and is it getting worse? To throw light on these questions, a major study by the Global Initiative against Transnational Organized Crime produced a comprehensive Strategic Organized Crime Risk Assessment report that covers 15 interconnected illicit markets.

This event launches the report, which paints a disturbing picture. Speakers will also point to policy changes and responses that could reduce the risks facing the country.

This event is co-hosted by the Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC), Institute for Security Studies (ISS), Department of Political Sciences, University of Pretoria and Global Initiative against Transnational Organized Crime (GI).
