The illicit trade of cigarettes has become a multi-billion dollar business today and has taken centre stage in the global debate in the last few years. There are various ways in describing the illicit cigarette trade: contraband, counterfeit, illicit whites, and diverted cigarettes. This organized crime enables corruption, undermines good governance, deprives governments of tax revenue, threatens national security, and facilitates other transnational organized crimes such as money laundering and/or human trafficking. International efforts and cooperation between organizations such as INTERPOL, the World Customs Organization, the European Anti-Fraud Office, governments, businesses, and non-governmental organizations have seen tangible results.

How does the tobacco industry address this crime, and where does the illicit cigarette trade intersect with human trafficking? This discussion will examine supply chain management and promising practices to identify risk, as well as current multi-stakeholder approaches and partnerships at the global, transnational, and national levels.

This webinar is the 5th webinar in the 2018 RESPECT webinar series, “The Human Trafficking – Organized Crime Nexus: Intersections, Vulnerabilities, and Analysis for the Private Sector.” This webinar series explores how human trafficking can intersect with other forms of organized crime and provide promising practices, strategies, and responses to alleviate further vulnerabilities for the private sector.

Panelists:

Moderator: Dr. Louise Shelley, Omer L. and Nancy Hirst Endowed Chair; Director, Terrorism, Transnational Crime and Corruption Center (TraCCC) and University Professor, Schar School of Policy and Government George Mason University 

Date: Thursday, May 17, 2018 at 10:00 am – 12:00 pm EST/ 4:00 – 6:00 pm CEST
