2/1/13Transnational Organized Crime in West AfricaWest Africa has long been the focus of United Nations attention, but it is only recently that the international community recognized organized crime as a key issue for the region. This recognition stems primarily from a single contraband flow - cocaine - a flow so large that its wholesale value on arrival in Europe would exceed the national security budgets of many countries in West Africa.

These threats are both a cause and a consequence of weak governance, a dynamic explored in the present report.  To view full report, please click here.  UNODCUN Document
