Abstract: The risk posed by organized crime is a central concern of governments and
markets around the world. Various manifestations of organised crime, including human
trafficking, can be seen as the product of market forces. A model is proposed to
comparatively assess the organised crime risks that focus on illicit markets rather than
individuals or groups. Using human trafficking as an example (of one of 9 kinds of
organised crime), ideas are presented for measurement and assessment in practice.
