This month, we have curated a list of articles and resources that may be useful to our RTC Alumni Network.
ENACT, which is implemented by the Institute for Security Studies and INTERPOL, in affiliation with the Global Initiative against Transnational Organised Crime, has developed the Organized Crime Index. Recently published this month, the ENACT Organised Crime Index provides a multi-dimensional measure of organised crime and its impact. The interactive platform assesses a state’s overall vulnerability to organised crime by measuring (1) the presence and scale of the threat
(2) state’s risk to organised crime, and
(3) the state’s capacity and political will to respond to organised crime threats.
