This report launch and panel discussion will focus on Global Financial Integrity's new report, Transnational Crime and the Developing World.
Transnational crime is a business, and business is very good. Money is the primary motivation for these illegal activities, activities that not only line the pockets of the perpetrators but also finance violence, corruption, further criminal activities, and other abuses. These crimes undermine local and national economies, destroy the environment, and jeopardize the health and wellbeing of the public. Transnational crime will continue to grow until the paradigm of high profits and low risks is challenged.
