Illegal trade is a shadow system of business that undermines the traditional marketplace through the sale of counterfeit and substandard goods. Often these goods are part of a long chain of criminal activity, including human trafficking. From clothing to medicine, agricultural products and natural resources, illegal trade is on the rise, creating unfair competition in the marketplace, threatening our health and safety as consumers and undermining the rule of law in our society.
Arizona is uniquely positioned to deal with these issues as a border state that manages billions of dollars in international trade every year with trading partners like Mexico, Canada, and China.

Join the Arizona Junior Fellows for an in-depth discussion on the impacts of illegal trade in Arizona and the United States. We will investigate what gives rise to shadow markets, how the public and private sectors are responding and what more policymakers can do to protect our state. The panelists will also analyze what sort of role students – as future and current employees in the public and private sectors – can play in combatting illegal trade.
