There is a "growing problem" of organized crime syndicates corrupting politics and politicians worldwide, especially at a local level.

That's according to Catalina Uribe, Programme Officer for UN partner organization, the Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance, otherwise known as International IDEA.

The Swedish-based institute organized a panel discussion at UN Headquarters this month on how to protect politics by deterring the influence of organized crime.

Ms Uribe spoke to Matthew Wells.
