Network bulletin

The aim of the bulletin is to bring Network members closer together so that they can learn from one another. The bulletin was created to showcase our members' recent publications and activities. It also allows the Global Initiative to keep you informed about new developments concerning the Network and its members.

Please use the links below to access the bulletins repository in English, French and Spanish.




Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much. (Helen Keller, American author)

Our strategy for 2021-2023

Within less than a decade, the GI-TOC has developed from being a lean start-up to a global organization.

The aim of this strategy is to consolidate that rapid growth, and to guide and inform the next phase of development in a way that demonstrates how the organization has become a truly global initiative. Therefore, the theme for this strategy period is to ‘go global’. For the Network, this implies that we want to further widen its international membership and broaden its inclusiveness.

GI-TOC flagship projects

Collaboration and experience sharing are two precious elements in the analysis and fight against all forms of transnational organized crime.

This is why we believe Network members can benefit from being aware of GI-TOC key projects and have the opportunity to support them.

In 2021, we initiated a series of presentations to bring GIN members and GI-TOC staff together to introduce the GI-TOC core work, and share ideas and experiences around the most important actions we bring forward.

Agenda - Upcoming presentations

The Organized Crime Index - (TBC date)

Communications Package

The Communications package package was designed as a tool for Network members. It provides a series of key speaking notes, social media tips and indications on how to handle membership and affiliation, how to use the Network logo, and more.

The Network on Social Media

We want to encourage engagement among Network members and promotion of Network members' work on social media.

To allow Network members to share information about their work with other members more independently, we are in the process of creating a member page - stay tuned!

Thank you very much for visiting the GIN Resource Centre
