International Conference on Criminal Threats and International Answers in the Global Sports Industry

Guillermo Jorge was a speaker at the International Conference on Criminal Threats and International Answers in the Global Sports Industry. It was organized jointly by the United Nations Office on Drug and Crime, the Department of Justice of the United States of America, the International Scientific and Professional Advisory Council of the United Nations Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice Programme (ISPAC), the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI) and the Centro Nazionale di Prevenzione e Difesa Sociale (CNPDS).

The Conference was held on December 12th and 13th in Milan, Italy and was focused on the growing involvement of organized crime and corrupt actors in the sports industry at national and global levels. The Conference was addressed to a host of international organizations, law enforcement agencies, academic and cultural institutions and other private stakeholders (i.e. event organizers, infrastructure owners, sport associations, leagues and clubs) concerned with curtailing this criminal phenomenon and  adhering to ISPAC suggestions in an effort to support forms of intergovernmental cooperation against organized crime and corruption.
