On 27 October, a report from Global Financial Integrity says that China is unique in that the government itself engages in certain types of criminal activity — specifically forced labour and intellectual property rights violations.  In addition, the country’s political, economic, and social policies have extensive repercussions on the presence and prevalence of these crimes, both domestically and internationally.  Furthermore, it says, the country’s willingness to cooperate and act on these crimes within the global context has been relatively limited.  The report scrutinises China’s role in 4 different transnational crimes — drug trafficking, counterfeiting and IP theft, human trafficking and wildlife trafficking — as well as the illicit financial flows (IFF) associated with these crimes.
