This Webinar explores the impact of the CoViD-19 pandemic on typically transnational forms of crime like organized crime, financial crime and corruption. World leading experts explore how the lockdown, the closure of borders and the transition to a more digital world and economy with the expanded use of cashless means of payments affect both crime and its governance.  How are criminals and organized criminal groups adjusting their modus operandi and their business models to the ‘new normal’ created by the pandemic? Are law enforcement agencies ready to respond to the new challenges?
