Transnational Organised Crime In Southeast Asia: Threat Assessment

Published By: S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies | Published Date: July, 01 , 2010

Transnational organised crime is considered one of the major threats to human security, impeding the social, economic, political and cultural development of societies. Much attention has been given to the dynamics of professional criminal groups but little has been given to the existence of the markets in which they operate. This edition of the NTS Alert argues that a focus on both of these is needed to address the underlying social, political, and economic factors that allow for transnational organised crime to thrive. In order to address the market dimensions of transnational organised crime, this Alert is framed as a ‘threat assessment’. Drawing data from reliable open¬source information, it analyses the size and magnitude of high¬priority crimes in Southeast Asia.
