Making Them Pay – Asset Recovery as a response to Grand Corruption

25 April 2017

Time: 4:30 - 6:00pm
Venue: Centre for Commercial Law Studies, 67-69 Lincoln's Inn Fields, London WC2A 3JB

On Tuesday 25 April 2017, the Criminal Justice Centre at Queen Mary University of London is holding a roundtable discussion on the place of asset recovery as a tool of anti-corruption policy. Jason Sharman (Professor of Politics, University of Cambridge) will discuss the conclusions of his book The Despot’s Guide to Wealth Management – On the International Campaign against Grand Corruption with James Mather (Barrister, Serle Court).

There is now a public consensus that it is unacceptable for a state to host money stolen from another state. Yet efforts over the past decade to stem the flow of stolen assets or to recover them for victims have had limited success. The discussion will explore what strategies promise greater success and the respective roles of governments, NGOs, legal experts and other stakeholders.
