The term "transnational organised crime" (TOC) refers to a wide range of illegal acts, including drug and human trafficking, drug smuggling, piracy, and money laundering. Conflict-torn and unstable nations are particularly prone to the dynamics of TOC and may provide more favourable circumstances for its growth. There are many and grave ramifications for such states. A look at how TOC has changed in recent years and how policy might be altered to take this into account is the focus of this study. There is a growing emphasis on opportunistic networks, rather than state-sponsored cartels, in today's TOC. These networks may specialise in transportation and logistics, for example. The study suggests a holistic approach to solving the issue, which emphasises TOC as only one factor in a much larger chain of events. A re-evaluation of many present TOC assumptions and a rethinking of current policies would be required.
