Center on Law and Globalization Releases Report which asks Hard Questions about the Global Fight Against Money Laundering and the Financing of Terrorism

The Center on Law and Globalization has released a report which questions the effectiveness of the global fight against worldwide money laundering and the financing of terrorism. The assessment is timely, given that major international banks in the UK, US, and Europe have admitted to massive violations of money laundering controls over long periods in the last few years. The international regulation and surveillance of dirty money is at a crossroads, states the report.

Co-authors, Professors Terence Halliday, Michael Levi, and Peter Reuter believe the report can strengthen systems for fighting money laundering and the financing of terrorism, while helping policy-makers recognize the potential costs and harms of financial surveillance and enforcement.
