IFF Africa – REAP Initiative
Assessment of risks of illicit financial flows related to corruption and tax abuse in African countries
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).
