Non-State Actors in Asset Recovery

Edited By Daniel Thelesklaf and Pedro Gomes Pereira

Non-state actors are of fundamental importance in the prevention and combating of corruption within asset recovery processes. Their roles and responsibilities were considered during an experts’ meeting hosted by the Basel Institute on Governance and the International Anti-Corruption Academy in September 2010.
This book contains essays presented at the meeting, written by practitioners and academics with extensive experiences in the numerous fields which comprise asset recovery processes. The contributions offer a diversity of views on roles which non-state actors (can) play in preventing and combating corruption and other forms of financial crimes.
The editors conclude by offering insights into ongoing challenges in asset recovery processes and ways to overcome these challenges.

ABOUT THE BASEL INSTITUTE ON GOVERNANCE The Institute and its International Centre for Asset Recovery The Basel Institute on Governance is an independent non-profit think tank conducting research, policy development and capacity building in the areas of corporate and public governance, anti-corruption and asset tracing and recovery. Based in Basel, Switzerland, and associated with the University of Basel, the Institute co-operates with governments and non-governmental organisations from around the world. Notably, the Institute also acts as a facilitator in debates on delicate corporate gov- ernance issues. In this context it co-founded the World Economic Fo- rum’s Partnering against Corruption Initiative and was central to the creation of anti-money laundering standards of the Wolfsberg Group. The Institute’s International Centre for Asset Recovery (ICAR) founded in July 2006 assists authorities in enhancing their capacities to seize, confiscate and recover the proceeds of corruption and money launder- ing. For this purpose, the ICAR trains officials in theoretical and strate- gic case assistance and facilitates co-operation between law enforce- ment agencies of different jurisdictions. In support of these activities, the ICAR operates a web-based knowledge sharing and training tool, the Asset Recovery Knowledge Centre (www.assetrecovery.org).
