Organised Crime in the »2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development«

Indicators and Measurements for International and National Implementation

SWP Comment 2015/C 45, 05.10.2015, 4 Seiten Forschungsgebiete

At the end of September 2015, heads of states and governments of the member states of the United Nations (UN) adopted the »2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development«, which contains 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs). In the run-up to the September summit, there were particularly intense debates on the goal addressing peace, justice and governance (SDG 16). The implementation of the targets anchored in SDG 16 are of central significance for the overall success of the agenda. That applies especially to the containment of organised crime (OC). The aspired reduction of illicit financial and arms flows, strengthening of stolen asset recovery and combating all forms of OC, all covered in one target, play an important role in removing obstacles to development. However, such objectives only take full effect when convincing indicators verify their implementation.
