About the Index

Based on the 2019 ENACT Organised Crime Index for Africa, the Global Organized Crime Index is a key flagship project of the Global Initiative Against Transnational Organized Crime. It is a multi-dimensional tool that assesses the level of criminality and resilience to organized crime for 193 countries along three key pillars – criminal markets, criminal actors and resilience. Developed over a two-year period, the Index draws from both quantitative and qualitative sources, and is underpinned by over 350 expert assessments and evaluations by the GI-TOC’s regional observatories.

The objective of the Index is to provide metrics-based information that would allow policymakers and continental and regional bodies to prioritize their interventions on the basis of a holistic assessment of where vulnerabilities lie, and equip them with the means to measure the efficacy of their responses to mitigate the impact of organized crime. This is the first iteration of the Global Index, which will be published every two years.

About The Global Initiative Against Transnational Organized Crime

The Global Initiative against Transnational Organized Crime (GI-TOC) is a network of prominent law enforcement, governance and development practitioners who are dedicated to seeking new and evidence-based strategies and responses to organized crime. Created in 2013 and headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, the GI-TOC has a globally dispersed Secretariat and a network of regional civil society observatories that work to provide a platform for engagement with states and for dialogue and joint action between civil society, law enforcement and other state actors. Overall, the GI-TOC works to promote greater debate and innovative approaches, which serve as the building blocks to an inclusive global strategy against organized crime.

Scores

Index composition

The Global Index measures criminality and resilience for each country on a scale of 1 to 10. Countries’ criminality scores are made up of the average of ten criminal markets and four criminal actor types. While encompassing a range of activities, criminal markets can be thought of as the political, social and economic systems surrounding all stages of the illicit trade and/or exploitation of commodities or people. Criminal actor scores are based on assessments of the structure, control and influence of groups engaged in organized criminal activities. The higher the criminality score a country has, the more severe its criminality conditions are.

Resilience scores are created by taking the average of 12 resilience indicators. These indicators represent the political, legal, economic and social spheres of society that when taken together, have the potential to provide holistic and effective responses to organized crime. Unlike criminality, the higher the resilience score a country has, the more effective its response measures are to organized crime.

The definitions of criminal markets, criminal actors, and resilience indicators as used for the purpose of the Index, can be downloaded here. All Index scores have gone through extensive rounds of review and verification by thematic, geographic and technical experts, and are accompanied by qualitative country profiles to ensure these numbers make sense in the real-world context and to offer users a foundation to develop informed policies to counter organized crime.

Rankings

Sort and compare

While responses differ from country to country, organized crime is nevertheless a global problem. Under the criminality and resilience components of the Index, countries are ranked based on their scores in order to offer users the option for comparative analysis, both thematically and geographically, across the globe. Countries may have similar scores but for different reasons, so above all, country rankings are meant to start a conversation among policymakers and regional bodies, encouraging them to delve deeper into how and why organized crime affects their respective countries, and learn from one another in order to develop effective resilience strategies.

Profile

Country summaries

In addition to the scores and rankings, the Global Organized Crime Index website allows users access to country summaries that explain the context behind each country’s scores. These summaries provide the background information on each country's criminality and resilience, including their subcomponents (i.e. criminal markets and criminal actors), while highlighting key trends based on expert assessments.

The 193 standardized country summaries offer a detailed view of each country context, striking a balance between 'raw' disaggregated/varied information and holistic, user-friendly material. Along with expert contributions, sources consulted in drafting the summaries include media and local sources, academic journals as well as the following:

  • Council of Europe
  • European Commission
  • Europol
  • Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI)

Make your own comparison

The Global Organized Crime Index offers a holistic framework of a country’s overall relationship to organized crime. At the same time, its subcomponents and indicators allow users to disaggregate such information and determine correlations with various impact areas in any given country, region and/or continent. Policymakers and other users are able to compare data geographically, substantively and, with future iterations of the Index, temporally, so that they can identify key trends over time.

Acknowledgements

The Global Organized Crime Index was developed by a core team at the Global Initiative Against Transnational Organized Crime: Laura Adal, Lyes Tagziria, Kosyo Ivanov, Nina Kaysser, Tuesday Reitano and Mark Shaw. Index development was also supported by Deborah Bonello, Josefina Salomon and Susanna Deetlefs, as Regional Coordinators. Credit to the GI-TOC Publications team, and to Claudio Landi and Café.art.br for the design, visualization and website.

In the process of developing this tool, the team drew on the support and expertise of almost 420 individuals and we would like to express our sincere gratitude to colleagues, experts, reviewers and research assistants for their tireless efforts to build a comprehensive and informative knowledge-sharing and analytical tool. Over a two-year period, experiences and informed opinions were exchanged, and lessons learned in order to develop the first global organized crime index of its kind.

The Index itself, however, has been seven years in the making, and its realization would not have been possible without the foundational work under ENACT (Enhancing Africa’s response to transnational organised crime) − supported by INTERPOL and the Institute for Security Studies (ISS), and funded by the European Union and funded in part by the Government of Norway. We would also like to extend our gratitude to the United States Department of State for funding the 2021 Global Organized Crime Index.
