Women in Economics Event: Illicit Financial Flows: Myths and Measurements 

Illicit financial flows detract from funds available for developing countries to invest in public services and productive enterprises. However, the scale of the problem is difficult to pin-down and in some cases is likely to be exaggerated, this detracts from evidence based discussions of solutions. This presentation will delve into the myths surrounding illicit financial flows and seek to clarify emerging evidence on measurement.
