Illicit Financial Flows from Developing Countries

Measuring OECD Responses

image of Illicit Financial Flows from Developing Countries

This publication identifies the main areas of weakness and potential areas for action to combat money-laundering, tax evasion, foreign bribery, and to identify, freeze and return stolen assets. It also looks at the role of development agencies and finds that the potential returns to developing countries from using ODA on issues like combating tax evasion or asset recovery are significant.  Finally, it identifies some opportunities for a scaled-up role for development agencies.

Executive summary

Illicit financial flows originating in developing countries – from money laundering, tax evasion and bribery – often reach OECD countries. Recognising these risks, OECD countries are taking action to avoid being safe havens for illegal money.
