    In terms of criminality, Egypt’s Index score of 5.14 places it 22nd in Africa and 2nd in North Africa.

    The country’s relatively high overall score is driven predominantly by its scores for criminal actors, characterised by moderately high scores for criminal networks, state-embedded actors and foreign actors. Although certain criminal markets are not deemed to have a significant impact in Egypt, others have considerable negative impacts, most notably the synthetic drugs and cannabis trade and arms trafficking. While Egypt performs slightly worse than the African average for criminality, its resilience score is just above the continental average at 3.96, ranking it 24th in Africa and 4th in North Africa. This indicates a marginally higher resilience to organised crime than the majority of African countries. Nevertheless, territorial integrity is the only resilience indicator for which Egypt is scored as sufficiently effective. All other indicators are characterised as either moderately effective or extremely ineffective. Egypt’s criminality and resilience scores suggest that, from a regional perspective, it is in a precarious situation with regards to organised crime.
