Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter provides an overview of the book which analyses organised crime legislation in the Asia Pacific region. It examines domestic offences criminalising participation in criminal organisations and equivalent provisions penalising the existence and operation of organised crime. The book also explores the adoption of relevant international treaties, in particular the Convention against Transnational Organised Crime, and examines efforts by the international community to promote wider implementation of this Convention in the region. The aim of the book is to assess the adequacy and efficiency of the existing provisions under domestic and international laws, and to develop recommendations for reform of the substantive criminal law in order to prevent and suppress organised crime more effectively in the region.
