    Angola is ranked 32nd in the Index, placing the country just below the continental average for criminality.

    High scores in environmental crimes and arms trafficking in particular, drives the overall high ranking, though the country also has two other criminal markets, the human trafficking and cocaine markets, that were assessed as having a moderate negative impact on society. Widespread corruption in the state apparatus, along with the engagement of criminal networks in numerous illicit economies resulted in scores being increased by experts. In terms of resilience, Angola rank 20th in Africa, performing better than the continental average. Although Angola has sufficiently strong, state-led institutions and frameworks, including law enforcement, as well as high international engagement, the country scores poorly in the protection of victims and support for civil society.
