UNICRI, in collaboration with the Institute of Centromarca for the Fight Against Counterfeiting (INDICAM), has published a new position paper which summarizes evidence from the recent International Conference on intellectual property (IP) infringement and organized crime.

This brochure presents an overview of the Programme on Asset Recovery and Illicit Financial Flows implemented by UNICRI. The Institute has over 25 years of experience in helping countries in their effort of tracing, freezing, seizing and confiscating illicitly obtained assets - including high-profile cultural assets.
