Southern Africa is increasingly a hub for drug trafficking, arms trafficking, smuggling in flora and fauna, and the illegal trade in natural resources. The ENACT Organised Crime Index shows that these illicit flows are enabled by transnational criminal markets and syndicates, and corrupt government officials.
Participants at this roundtable will discuss the ENACT project’s impact and priorities for future research and technical assistance.
ENACT seeks to enhance Africa’s response to transnational organised crime. It is implemented by the Institute for Security Studies (ISS), the Global Initiative against Transnational Organized Crime (GI-TOC) and INTERPOL. Since 2017, ENACT has delivered evidence-based analysis to policymakers across Africa, and strengthened their technical and operational capacity to respond.
