Organised and transnational crime

Organised crime places a significant burden on international economies and communities each year in terms of lost revenue and costs to criminal justice, social, health and welfare systems.

This form of crime generally reaches across borders and can include corruption, trafficking in drugs or in people, and laundering money.
