Trafficking is an opportunistic activity that is not limited to one type of property. When there is opportunity, whether created by war, natural disaster, famine or disease, organized criminals will take what will sell. This program will discuss the illegal activities and methods used by traffickers to loot the cultural, human, wildlife and resource wealth of areas and turmoil. We will examine the impacts of trafficking including the proliferation of zoonotic pathogens, and will examine legal and enforcement strategies and reforms needed to quell trafficking.
