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. This report shows that women, children and men of all ages and race are forced to labor in illicit sectors, where they are abused by organized criminals pursuing clandestine profits. 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.
