How has organised crime in Africa changed since 2019?
Criminal networks took advantage of the COVID-19 health crisis, adapting to movement restrictions and new policing priorities, and bypassing institutional controls. As the threat of organised crime continues in Africa despite the pandemic, resilience measures among communities have weakened.

This seminar launches the latest data from the ENACT Organised Crime Index. A picture of criminality and resilience in Africa will be presented, along with a longitudinal comparison of trends since 2019 when the index was launched. The analysis aims to guide African policymaking and stimulate debate on one of the greatest threats to the continent’s security and development.
