This paper on “Globalization and Transnational Organized Crime in Africa ” aimed at analyzing the negative impacts of globalization on African continent. The paper made use of secondary sources (books, journal articles, internet materials,monographs etc) of data collection and relied on theory of classical economic liberalism as its framework of analysis. Again, findings revealed that inspite of the benefits of globalization, especially in the area of tourism, communication and technological revolution; globalization has impacted negatively on African states. It has resulted in transnational crimes such as bunkering, drug trafficking, small arms proliferation, maritime piracy, as well as terrorism. Regrettably, despite the local and international responses towards mitigating the impacts of international organized crime in Africa, the perpetrators are still operating without hindrance. In order to end these menace, the paper recommends increased collaboration between the Francophone and Anglophone African countries as well as strengthening of state institutions, such as security agencies and judiciary.
