Disrupting the Illicit Antiquities Trade in the Real and Virtual World

24 Hour Conference on Global Organized Crime

The panel will discuss the research conducted by a research team to understand the criminal networks and supply chains for the antiques looted from the Middle East. Analysis of websites, social media and the dark web were examined after extensive web scraping to understand the dynamics of the illicit art market and online auction platforms. This panel examines diverse actors, routes and methods of sales as well as the means that military, law enforcement and legal systems are used to address and investigate and disrupt this trade with limited success.
