Assessment of risks of illicit financial flows related to corruption and tax abuse in African countries

Funded by REAP Initiative
Starting date February 2022
End date April 2022

This project studies Illicit Financial Flows in Africa by developing a methodology to estimate and comprehend illicit financial flows related to corruption, tax evasion and tax avoidance in eight African countries.

The methodology consists of a quantitative analysis (i.e. production of composite risk indicators), a qualitative analysis (i.e. interviews and focus groups with local stakeholders), a case-study analysis (i.e. in-depth study of actual episodes in which illicit financial flows leave African countries).
