Governance and Human Rights Reporting Transnational Organised Crime

Transnational organized crime (TOC) is a serious threat to international peace, good governance and development - and is on the rise globally, including across Africa. It is an obstacle to reducing poverty, distorts local economies and undermines development efforts.  By reporting on criminal activity, monitoring the integrity and independence of governance and mobilizing public opinion, independent journalists and the media are critical to holding governments to account and mobilizing civil society


 Thomson Reuters Foundation is offering a training scheme for journalists across Africa, in partnership with the ENACT programme (Enhancing Africa’s Response to Transnational Organised Crime).

A three-year, EU funded project lead by the Institute for Security Studies, INTERPOL and the Global Initiative against Transnational Organized Crime , ENACT works to mitigate the impact of transnational organised crime in Africa on development, governance, security and the rule of law, recognising the need for a holistic understanding of the TOC phenomenon and the important role of multi-sector stakeholders, including journalists, in the development of effective, long-term responses.
