Trafficking Culture

Trafficking Culture is a programme of research, constituted by an overall theme of interest in understanding the international trade in illicit cultural objects (which includes of course the necessity to understand intra-national trade as well), and attempting to develop and refine an evidence base for promoting effective policy interventions to reduce this global form of trafficking. In practical terms, the research programme is taken forward by many mutually reinforcing and in several cases overlapping research strands, each driven by one researcher and supported by the others in the team. These individual projects are set out below.
