n Acta Criminologica: Southern African Journal of Criminology - The crime-risk profile of commercial institutions in South Africa

Volume 13, Issue 3

Crimes against the South African business sector are widely perceived as detrimental to local and regional development in Southern Africa and there is general concern that the democratisation of South Africa will be undermined if it is not matched with economic development aimed at improving the socio-economic conditions of all South Africans. There is also growing concern that crime is undermining the government's economic development and job creation programmes as the dismantling of apartheid or separate development did not result in the expected increase in foreign investments which was to have stimulated economic development. Both government and the business community ascribe this to the high crime rate in the country and the inability to prevent and control crime.
