    The Republic of Congo ranks 29th in the Index, with a criminality score in line with the African average.

    Consistent with continental trends, the criminal actors score drives up the overall criminality score more than its criminal markets score. The illicit flora and fauna markets, particularly the illegal logging of timber, as well as poaching for bushmeat and ivory, are among the country’s primary illicit economies, scoring 8 and 7, respectively. Additionally, because of cocaine transiting the country and the involvement of high-ranking officials in the cocaine trade, the cocaine market was assessed as having a moderately negative influence on society. The country scores moderately for human smuggling, human trafficking and arms trafficking, all scoring 4. In line with regional trends, state-embedded actors are the most pervasive criminal actor type in the country, scoring 8, largely because of endemic corruption, which enables criminal networks to develop. In terms of resilience, the Republic of Congo scored relatively poorly, with no score exceeding 4, and it ranks 36th in Africa. Porous borders, corruption that is present at the highest levels of government, and insufficient victim and witness support are among the contributors to the country’s low levels of resilience.
