Global Organized Crime Index 2021

The Global Initiative Against Transnational Organized Crime (GI-TOC) has released the first edition of their Global Organized Crime Index, a unique data-driven tool that assesses the levels of organized crime and resilience to organized criminal activity in all 193 United Nations member states. Each country is assigned a criminality score as well as a resilience score on a scale of 1 to 10.

The results and implications of the data are introduced in a report entitled Global Organized Crime Index 2021 and also presented in an interactive website tool. By sharing this information, the creators hope to contribute to better policymaking and building effective responses to organized crime at international, national, and regional levels.

Additional information from the GI-TOC can be found in this launch video:
