Organised crime poses a substantial threat to South Africa, but what is the exact nature of the threat, how do criminal networks operate and is it getting worse? To throw light on these questions, a major study by the Global Initiative against Transnational Organized Crime produced a comprehensive Strategic Organized Crime Risk Assessment report that covers 15 interconnected illicit markets.

This event launches the report, which paints a disturbing picture. Speakers will also point to policy changes and responses that could reduce the risks facing the country.

This event is co-hosted by the Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC), Institute for Security Studies (ISS), Department of Political Sciences, University of Pretoria and Global Initiative against Transnational Organized Crime (GI).

Facilitator: Prof Narnia Bohler-Muller, Executive Director, Developmental, Capable and Ethical State division, HSRC

Presentation: Dr Mark Shaw, Director, GI


Prof Sandy Africa, Deputy-Dean, Faculty of Humanities and Associate Professor, Political Sciences, University of Pretoria

Ottilia Anna Maunganidze, Head, Special Projects, ISS

Adv Vusi Pikoli, Board Member and Senior Advisor, GI (TBC)
