An Occasional Paper from RUSI on 23 March analyses organised crime-related sanctions data and examines the current state of knowledge on the implementation and impact of these sanctions.  It says that little research or evaluation has been undertaken to assess the impact of sanctions against organised crime.  It reviews existing evidence on the use and impact of sanctions to disrupt organised criminal activity. It focuses on 2 case studies, Colombia and Libya, with different exposure to organised crime-focused sanctions.  It identifies a number of factors that influence the impact of organised crime-focused sanctions.
