An indicator to measure counterfeiting risk

Crime&tech is partner of UNICRI - United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute - to develop a synthetic indicator of counterfeiting risk across Italian areas. The project, funded by the Italian Ministry for Economic Development (MISE), builds on UNICRI’s study of counterfeiting and on Crime&tech’s expertise in elaborating risk indicators. The counterfeiting indicator combines different risk factors, grouped in threats and vulnerabiltiies, operationalized in a range of variables originating from different sources: administrative statistics, data on seizures of counterfeit products and goods, presence of vulnerability factors such as ports, airports, public spaces and on the criminal groups active in counterfeit production and trade.
