Detecting and countering illicit financial flows

2nd network meeting

As part of the Detecting and countering illicit financial flows project, we have established an informal network of leading international researchers working on the topic of international tax and illicit financial flows.

The second meeting of the network takes place on 3 March 2021 at 4.30-6pm CET. The event will include the following presentations: 

  • "Banking Bad? A Global Field Experiment on Bank and Corporate Transparency" (Jason Sharman, U of Cambridge)
  • “Technology (Ab)use and Corruption in Customs” (Bob Rijkers, World Bank)
  • “Does the threat of being blacklisted change behavior?” (Matt Collins, Brookings Institution)

The online meeting will be chaired by Professors Niels Johannesen and Finn Tarp. The project is implemented by UNU-WIDER in partnership with University of Copenhagen (UCPH), with financial support from the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (Norad) and is part of a larger Domestic Revenue Mobilization (DRM) programme.
