The talk will highlight work conducted by Prof. Schouwstra’s on the United Nations Interregional Crime & Justice Research Institute (UNICRI):

“Illicit trafficking in precious metals generates a number of local and global challenges and threats. It not only harms the mining companies, but also severely hinders the socioeconomic development of producing countries while putting local communities at risk. In addition, illicit trafficking increases the precious metals supply chain’s vulnerability to the infiltration of transnational organised crime and it is also frequently associated to different serious cross-border crimes”.
