This paper analyses offenses dealing with the incrimination of organized crime under international and domestic law in the Asia Pacific region and develops recommendations to improve existing and proposed provisions. The article frames the arguments for and against offenses such as ‘participation in an organized crime group’, ‘gangsterism’ or ‘racketeering’, and critically examines the rationale, elements, and application of existing and proposed organized crime offenses in the Asia Pacific.
