Collecting information about the characteristics and extent of organized crime represents a crucial step to understand its weaknesses and target counter policies. In this context, Transcrime collaborates with the Center of Excellence, supported by UNODC and INEGI, to develop and test a methodology for the measurement of organized crime in Latin America and the Caribbean.
First, a theoretical framework was defined. It allowed to outline some guidelines (roadmap) to collect data, both quantitative and qualitative, and call for the production of missing information in order to assess the presence of organized crime in each country. In particular, what was proposed is an approach involving the breakdown of the concept of organized crime into five main dimensions: groups, activities, state reponse, contextual enablers and civil society response. These five dimensions were further divided in turn into several sub-dimensions for better outlining the phenomenon. Later, a methodology was developed to aggregate these pieces of information by creating a system of scores and indicators at national and sub-national level.
This methodology has been tested in some countries (Chile, Colombia and Mexico) from the data already available.
