On 28 September, the Global Initiative Against Transnational Organised Crime released this report, the result of a 2-year endeavour to evaluate levels of crime and resilience in all 193 UN member states. Through this data, the organisation says that it is hoped that the Index will help inform a truly global response to the pervasive threat of transnational organised crime.  It also says that, as a snapshot of 2020, the Index also highlights the adaptability of organised crime to the pandemic.  In addition, by providing a consolidated hub of data and baseline evidence of the phenomenon in countries across the world, the Index aims to be a catalyst for further debate on transnational organised crime.
