The Global illicit Flows Programme of the European Union is formed by its twelve component projects. Each component project is implemented by different partners or association of partners.
CIVIPOL is the technical cooperation operator of the French Ministry of the Interior. Combining the efficiency of a private company with the power of its public service mission, and financed almost exclusively by international sponsors, CIVIPOL builds cooperative security projects with states on a fair return basis in internal security. The unique skills of our project leaders and operational experts are dedicated to the principles of interior security of states.
Expertise France is a public agency and a key actor in international technical cooperation. It designs and implements projects that sustainably strengthen public policies in developing and emerging countries. Governance, security, climate, health, education… It operates in key areas of sustainable development and contributes alongside its partners to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda.
The Fundación Internacional y para Iberoamérica de Administración y Políticas Públicas (FIIAPP) is a public sector foundation that manages international cooperation projects within the 2030 Agenda framework. With a mandate based on the exchange of experiences between the public Administrations of different countries, it is a means for Spanish and European cooperation efforts. The Foundation works to support governments by focusing on international cooperation projects, assisting public policy reform processes shaped by partner country priorities. With a presence in over 100 countries, FIIAPP creates space for dialogue between counterpart institutions, as well as knowledge exchange through the engagement of public expertise. FIIAPP consequently encourages stronger relations and trust between public institutions, and relationships that can last beyond the project, which also contributes to creating shared values amongst societies of our partner countries.
Global Initiative Against Transnational Organized Crime (GI-TOC) – The Global Initiative was born from a series of high-level, off the record discussions between mainly (though not exclusively) law-enforcement officials from both developed and developing countries in New York in 2011–12. At these meetings, the founding members of the Global Initiative, many of whom stand at the front line of the fight against organized crime, illicit trafficking and trade, concluded that the problem and its impacts are not well analysed; they are not systematically integrated into national plans or strategies; existing multilateral tools are not structured to facilitate a response; and existing forms of cooperation tend to be bilateral, slow and restricted to a limited number of like-minded states. The result was the creation of the Global Initiative against Transnational Organized Crime, which provides a platform to promote greater debate and innovative approaches, which serve as the building blocks to an inclusive global strategy against organized crime.
INTERPOL is the world’s largest international police organisation. With over 190 member states, INTERPOL’s primary mandate is to enable police to work together to make the world a safer place. With its unparalleled convening power, high-tech infrastructure and technical and operational support, INTERPOL helps national police services to meet the growing challenge of fighting crime in the 21st century. INTERPOL has a National Central Bureau in each of the African Union’s 55 member states, and facilitates coordinated, specialised actions against priority organised crimes in Africa.
The Institute for Security Studies (ISS) works with partners to build knowledge and skills that enable sustainable peace, development and prosperity in Africa. Established in 1991, the ISS is Africa’s leading multidisciplinary human security organisation, with a unique operational model that combines research, policy analysis, technical assistance and training. The ISS has also developed a powerful forecasting capability to identify future risks and opportunities in fields as diverse as development, industrialisation, demographics, technology and climate change. The ISS is independent, credible and has a reputation for delivering impact locally, nationally, regionally and internationally. Headquartered in Pretoria, South Africa, the organisation has regional offices in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia; Dakar, Senegal and Nairobi, Kenya. The institute’s decentralised approach is underpinned by efficient governance structures and financial sustainability. Our work covers African futures, transnational crimes, climate change, migration, maritime security and development, peacekeeping, peacebuilding, crime prevention and criminal justice, and the analysis of conflict and governance.
Law enforcement agencies of several Member States of the European Union
Several projects of the Global Illicit Flows Programme are implemented in partnership with Law enforcement agencies of Member States of the European Union. They provide targeted and high level expert advice to GIFP component projects and support the development of ever stronger ties between the European Union, its Member States and GIFP partner countries and institutions in the fight against organised crime and illicit trafficking.
RUSI Europe studies, promotes, debates and reports on all issues relating to international defence and security in Europe and abroad. RUSI Europe is a not-for-profit international organisation, is independent of government and is committed to objectivity, integrity and impartiality in all of its work.
Based in Brussels, RUSI Europe is committed to help solve the most urgent security and defence challenges. RUSI Europe carries out research and provides a forum for the security and defence sectors in the European Union and other NATO countries.
Transparency International is a global civil society organisation leading the fight against corruption. With its over 90 national chapters around the world it brings people together in a powerful worldwide coalition to end the devastating impact of corruption on men, women and children around the world. Transparency International’s mission is to create change towards a world free of corruption.
For two decades, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) has been helping make the world safer from drugs, organized crime, corruption and terrorism. The UNODC is committed to achieving health, security and justice for all by tackling these threats and promoting peace and sustainable well-being as deterrents to them. Because the scale of these problems is often too great for states to confront alone, UNODC offers practical assistance and encourages transnational approaches to action. The UNODC does this in all regions of the world through our global programmes and network of field offices. The Office is committed to supporting Member States in implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at its core. The 2030 Agenda clearly recognizes that the rule of law and fair, effective and humane justice systems, as well as health-oriented responses to drug use, are both enablers for and part of sustainable development.
The World Customs Organization (WCO) is an independent intergovernmental body, established in 1952 as the Customs Co-operation Council (CCC), whose mission is to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of Customs services across the globe. The WCO represents 183 Customs administrations that collectively process approximately 98% of world trade. As the global centre of Customs expertise, the WCO is the only international organization with competence in Customs matters. As a forum for dialogue and exchange of experiences between national Customs delegates, the WCO offers its Members a range of Conventions and other international instruments, as well as technical assistance and training services provided either directly by the Secretariat, or with its participation. The Secretariat also actively supports its Members in their endeavours to modernize and build capacity within their national Customs administrations.
