The infiltration of organized crime into the legitimate supply chain is a complex issue that requires a multifaceted response, including consideration of the role that technology can play to help combat related criminal activities.
UNICRI, in collaboration with the Institute of Centromarca for the Fight Against Counterfeiting (INDICAM), has published a new position paper which summarizes evidence from the recent International Conference on intellectual property (IP) infringement and organized crime.
Over the last century, organized crime has demonstrated a remarkable capacity to rapidly adapt to mutated social, political and economic conditions. While in some cases this adaptation was the result of a reactive response to improved legislation targeting their interests, in many others it was ignited by the pursuit of new possibilities for economic profit.
From 10-12 May 2022 in Nairobi, the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI) organized the workshop “Using authentication technologies and nuclear analytical techniques to counter criminal infiltration into the legitimate supply chain: the cases of fuel frauds, illegal pesticides, illegal fishing and counterfeit medicines”.
On 20 November 2020, UNICRI held the virtual meeting “Supply chain security: food fraud”. The meeting was organized by the UNICRI Knowledge Center Security through Research, Technology and Innovation (SIRIO) in Geneva.
