Organised Crime and Security Policy: Understanding the Threat to Design Better Responses 2023
This course provides participants with the skill set and analytical tools to better understand organized crime, its impact (particularly harms), and how to address it more effectively especially when crafting policy.
Organised crime has become a threat to international peace and security. It fuels and benefits from conflict, it undermines development, it can capture governance, and it profits from the plunder of the planet. Despite the wide-ranging impact of organised crime, it is insufficiently understood and analysed. Furthermore, policymakers often don’t know how to prevent or address it.
This course, offered jointly by GCSP and the Global Initiative against Transnational Organised Crime, explains the impact of organised crime on security policy, and explores what to do about it.
