2020 marked the start of a global pandemic and the world’s first 24-hour virtual conference on global organized crime, #OC24. Since then, two editions of OC24 took place, bringing together scholars and practitioners from all over the world at a scale and in a way that a physical conference cannot.
With five innovative session formats, the two editions of #OC24 in 2020 and 2021 attracted more than 5,000 participants worldwide.
At the OC24-2021 and over the course of 24 hours, 320+ leading organized crime scholars and practitioners from over 40 countries discussed and presented a diverse range of topics, including environmental crime, corruption, human trafficking, illicit trade and counterfeiting, drug trafficking and the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on organized crime worldwide.
A supportive Secretariat team of more than 170 students, early-career academics, young professionals and researchers from leading organized crime universities and institutions worldwide also contributed to the two OC24 conferences’ success.
