About this talk
Transnational organized crime and corruption are central issues for NGOs members of the Alliance. A recent survey revealed that NGOs are concerned with the continued challenges to effective crime prevention and fairness of the system, including the additional stress caused by COVID-19, and the promotion of gender-sensitive policies, victims rights, as well as clear and transparent information. Based on survey responses and in-depth interviews with NGOs in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas, the panel will present examples of good practices in civil society engagement against transnational organized crime and trafficking.
