About this talk

A form of Illicit trade, product counterfeiting is a rapidly growing global problem adversely affecting the economy, public safety and health, national security, consumers and businesses. Organized crime syndicates operate schemes responsible for a large proportion of the world’s counterfeit product supply. In this session, we will share research exploring the roles of four stakeholder groups in facilitating and disrupting the illicit product counterfeit economy: social media influencers, consumers, brands, and the country of Turkey. This session will integrate various substantive, methodological and geographical perspectives to advance a broad discussion about the nature, opportunity structures and prevention of illicit trade generally and product counterfeiting specifically.
