GLITSS

THE UNSEEN AND FAR-REACHING CONSEQUENCES OF ILLICIT TRADE IN TIMES OF WAR AND BEYOND

Zmaja od Bosne 8, Sarajevo

The second annual GLITSS conference delves into the intricate repercussions of illicit trade on contemporary societies within the European and global context. Illicit trade, encompassing activities such as counterfeiting, smuggling, and trafficking, extends beyond mere economic and legal concerns to pose significant security, safety and sustainability challenges. It enables security threats to materialize, such as natural-resource-fueled-conflicts and terrorism. It presents safety hazards, such as those created by counterfeit medicines and drugs. TI threatens the sustainability of our societies by consuming excessive planetary resources and undermining the regulated functioning of international markets. Yet, despite this obvious objective relevance, the discussion on illicit trade remains compartmentalized within disciplinary boundaries. Bringing together experts, policymakers, academics, and industry stakeholders, the conference explores the complex interplay between illicit trade and its multifaceted threats to security, safety, and sustainability.
