Amongst the worst crimes associated with illicit trade is the demand it creates for forced and child labor to carry out the tasks of making counterfeits, sewing fake logos on luxury apparel, or harvesting illegal fish.

It concludes that ending these human rights abuses will only be possible by eradicating illicit trade and the demand for forced labor associated with it.
