ISS Advises Leaders at the WEF

Du Plessis advises world leaders on the threat that transnational organised crime poses to the development of fragile states in Africa

Speaking at the World Economic Forum (WEF) on Africa in Nigeria, Anton du Plessis, managing director of the Institute for Security Studies (ISS), advised world leaders on the threat that transnational organised crime poses to the development of fragile states in Africa.
 
Held under the theme 'Fragility Today, Prosperity Tomorrow,' Du Plessis debated on how development strategies can restore peace and security with co-panelists, Kofi Annan, Nigerian President, Goodluck Jonathan, and Algerian President, Mohamed Khelifa, among others.
 
Du Plessis states that, “Transnational organised crime is the elephant in the room. It is a politically-charged topic because it finds itself at the intersection of law, politics, power and sovereignty. But we must speak about it because organised crime poses a growing risk to progress in fragile states, and must be addressed head on.”
