IPI’s Coping with Crisis program held a roundtable meeting on transnational organized crime at the Millennium UN Plaza Hotel. The roundtable was the first of five such events to be held for “Task Force One: Transnational Security Challenges.”
The roundtable opened with an overview of the background to transnational organized crime, and was followed by more detailed sessions on the key aspects of the issue: current institutional policy and the shortcomings thereof; reasons previous attempts to address such shortcomings have failed; outline of the changes needed to address failings; and discussion of the strategy needed to achieve these policy renovations.
