Illicit financial flows and the impact on developing countries

Transcrime and ASERI are pleased to announce the “Illicit financial flows and the impact on developing countries: Measurement challenges and policy implications” conference, which will take place on March 23rd, at 3 p.m.

The event will be joined by the Distinguished Professor Peter Reuter, from the University of Maryland, and will focus on the concept of Illicit Financial Flows (IFFs), which has become a key issue in the international agenda and lies at the core of the global debate.

Specifically, starting from the heavy impact that IFFs show to have on developing countries, the event will provide the chance to discuss the existing difficulties in the assessment and measurement of such phenomenon, and the challenges that this sets to the design of effective policies to curb it.

The event will be accessible both in presence at ASERI – Graduate School of Economics and International Relations (Via San Vittore 18, Milano) and online.
