Organised Crime in Africa: A case study of Grassy Park, Cape Town

More news about the topic

Grassy Park, a suburb in Cape Town, South Africa, bears a disproportionate burden of gang-related violent crime. The concentration of gang violence has eroded the ability of local government – including education, social services, housing and healthcare, as well as policing and the criminal justice system – to function effectively.

This paper provides insight and practical recommendations for policymakers and civil society in Cape Town and the Western Cape.
