Black Market Watch aims to become the most trusted and recognized promoter of better understanding and awareness of illicit trade issues by:

  • Conducting research and investigative projects that shed new light on illicit trade
  • Identifying synergies between efforts to fight illicit trade and other issues on the global agenda such as trade, organised crime, terrorism, environmental degradation, health, human rights, sustainability, corporate social responsibility and other relevant themes
  • Communicating on important areas of concern that may be sensitive/difficult for international organisations, governments, and businesses to raise directly
