At the end of November 2021, the Global Initiative Against Transnational Organized Crime alongside the International Institute for Strategic Studies released the Africa Organized Crime Index 2021 – which provides a picture of criminality and resilience of every country in Africa. The aim is to guide African policymaking and to stimulate debate on one of the greatest threats to the security and development of the continent – organized crime.

Lindy sits down with Laura Adal (GITOC) and Martin Ewi (ISS) to discuss this collaborative work.

Presenter: Lindy Mtongana

Speakers:

Martin Ewi, Institute for Security Studies

Laura Adal, Senior Analyst, Global Initiative Against Transnational Organized Crime
