Held as part of a series of activities organised by the EU Global Facility on AML/CFT in cooperation with the Siracusa International Institute, this meeting will gather for the first time the Expert Working Group on Scoping and Methodology to assess the scope and effectiveness of innovative legal approaches to money laundering investigations and asset recovery.
This group comprises leading criminal law academics, constitutional law specialists, Constitutional Court Judges and AML/CFT practitioners, who will work on a far-reaching study on the scope and effectiveness of innovative legal approaches to money laundering investigations, including criminal, civil and administrative legal approaches to asset recovery.
In this kick-off meeting, the working group will define the scope of the study and provide initial guidance to the research team. They will do so by taking part in two “tour de table” sessions where experts will have the opportunity to share their knowledge and experience about such innovations in their home jurisdictions.
The outcome of this guidance will serve to set up the project encompassing the various phases and methodology of the research.
