Today, the Wildlife Justice Commission published a new report on the convergence of wildlife crime with other forms of organised crime: Convergence of wildlife crime with other forms of organised crime: A 2023 Review.
Tag: crime convergence
This report builds on our first crime convergence report, published in 2021, which analysed a set of 12 case studies, and illustrated the varied ways that wildlife crime can overlap or intersect with other serious and organised crimes.
This month marks our 8th anniversary. A good moment to reflect on how it all started in 2015: five staff members, one donor, two cases and an ambitious strategy to hold governments accountable for failing to address wildlife crime occurring in their own countries, through the mechanism of a Public Hearing in the City of Peace and Justice, The Hague.
The past few decades, we have not only witnessed a rise in environmental crime, but also its convergence with other forms of organised crime like the trafficking of humans, drugs and firearms. These facts set the starting point of a panel discussion held during the 31st session of the CCPCJ.
The Wildlife Justice Commission was joined on 17 June by a panel of experts for a high-level online discussion: Crime convergence: intelligent approaches to organised crime.
Join our panel of experts on 17 June for a discussion about the convergence of wildlife crime with other forms of organised crime.
The Wildlife Justice Commission’s new report demonstrates that wildlife crime is a cross-cutting criminal activity which cannot be tackled in isolation from other crimes.
At the 14th UN Crime Congress, the Wildlife Justice Commission will highlight the urgency to tackle wildlife trafficking as what it is: transnational organised crime.
Wildlife crime is believed to intersect with other transnational organised crimes. Our webinar with UNODC and our new briefing paper expose how intelligence analysis can lead to a greater understanding of this crime convergence.
