Join TRACIT as we convene top policy and government leaders for a panel discussion on the connection between illicit trade and corruption.
One of the key underlying conditions that makes countries more vulnerable to illicit trade is corruption, which erodes controls designed to prohibit illegal goods to move across borders, undermines law enforcement operations to detect or interrupt illicit trade, and contributes to impunity of illicit traders.
Any successful steps to mitigate illicit trade will necessarily require strong and targeted measures to mitigate corruption and prevent corrupt actors from compromising the integrity of the global supply chain.
Dr. Ulrika Bonnier, TRACIT Director of Programs and principal author of the report, presented the key findings.
The webinar addressed the interrelationship between illicit trade and corruption and explored solutions available to prioritize and intensify an anti-illicit trade agenda at the national level.
The report, executive summary and all materials related to the launch are available here.
