Illicit financial flows and environmental crime in Southeast Asia

A Talk by Kristina Amerhauser , Robin Cartwright and Henry Williams

About this Talk

"Illicit financial flows (IFFs) are the lifeblood of crime and corruption. They facilitate corrupt elites that maintain power structures and may even be the most significant obstacle to equality, fairness and opportunity in transitioning economies. IFFs are financial resources that could have been utilised for public services, investment, or jobs. All of society suffers from this exfiltrated economic value: civil society, business, consumers, and governments alike.

This panel will discuss different approaches used to analyse IFFs linked specifically to environmental crime in Southeast Asia. By looking at specific case studies from the region, it will also shed light at the impact of environmental IFFs on the economies and societies of the region and the challenges faced when following the money.
