In a new analytic paper Dr. Anja P. Jakobi reflects on the CGPCS by contrasting the group with other mechanisms of global crime governance. She argues that the Contact Group represents a recently emerging type of organization. In particular the local focus of the group has helped bringing together a variety of actors and multiple levels to deliver solutions to a global policy problem. In consequences, she suggests that the model of the Contact Group would be less successful, in cases where the criminal activity is more wide-spread and more conflicting interests and veto-players would needed to be moderated. Taken together, the Contact Group has its main strengths in implementation and delegation, less so in finding compromise across hugely disparate political camps.
