About this Talk
The UNTOC and the UNCAC provide states with legal and cooperation frameworks to prevent and counter the phenomena, and their review mechanisms allow states to better understand how they are progressing in implementing their provisions. But measuring the prevalence and impacts of organized crime and corruption is a more complex and sensitive task.
IACA’s Global Programme on Measuring Corruption is a new initiative that works with international organisations, governments, civil society, private sector and academia to collaboratively design a robust, relevant and useful approach to measuring corruption.
GI-TOC’s Global Organized Crime Index is a multi-dimensional tool that assesses the level of criminality and resilience to organized crime for 193 countries along three key pillars – criminal markets, criminal actors and resilience. The session will introduce the Global Programme on Measuring Corruption and the Global Organized Crime Index. It will stimulate discussion on the utility of measures, their relevance for practitioners and policy makers.
