On 7 May, the Global Infinitive Against Transnational Organised Crime published a report saying that extortion – the extraction of money, goods, services or loyalty through the threat of force – is a pervasive global problem that threatens developing and developed countries alike; and that extortion attacks the order and systems of governance and erodes social confidence in the state. It ultimately reduces the quality of human life, people’s productivity and their right to be free. The purpose of this handbook is to provide a clear understanding of what extortion is and how it manifests itself in different regions and communities around the world. It identifies successful community– based practices designed to prevent extortion, and proposes recommendations, action plans and guidelines to counter extortion.
