Workshop on illicit financial flows

25-26 October 2022, Copenhagen

Workshop on illicit financial flows

UNU-WIDER together with the Development Economics Research Group at the University of Copenhagen (UCPH-DERG) organizes an in-person workshop on illicit financial flows (IFFs) at the University of Copenhagen on 25-26 October 2022.

Under its Domestic Revenue Mobilization programme, UNU-WIDER together with UCPH-DERG, with support from the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (Norad), implements the Detecting and countering illicit financial flows project.

The project seeks to address the challenge of IFFs by investigating the magnitude of these flows, the channels through which they flow, and the policy responses that may decrease the flows. The aim is to expand the research frontier and provide knowledge for the governments of developing countries in support of policies that will increase revenue collection.

This workshop is organized to discuss the research topics chosen from a call for papers published earlier in 2022. The workshop will include presentations by the authors of the research and invited specialists. Based on the outcome of the workshop the IFF project may commission followup studies on topics that are particularly promising or pertinent to the formulation of anti-IFF policies.
