A web of harms: serious and organised crime and its impact on Australian interests

20 Aug 2015
Description

Overview

This report analyses serious, transnational and organised crime and the harms it causes to Australia’s interest, with the aim of reinvigorating a discussion of this critical matter amongst Australians.

This web impacts on our national interests to the sum of an estimated $15 billion per year. That very conservative estimate includes costs to government through denied revenue and increased law enforcement costs. But there are also social, health and economic harms to individuals, community and business.

The report poses a series of questions to be considered by the community, business and government.
