Second Expert Meeting on Statistical Methodologies for Measuring Illicit Financial Flows

Between 20 and 22 June 2018, the Second "  Expert Meeting on Statistical Methodologies for Measuring Illicit Financial Flows " was co-organised by UNCTAD, UNODC and ECA at the Palais des Nations, Geneva. Some 40 experts from different institutions such as international organisations, academia and think tanks, national statistical offices and financial intelligence units participated in the discussion.

Building on the first meeting held in Vienna on 12-14 December 2017 (see  http://www.unodc.org/unodc/en/data-and-analysis/statistics/expert-consultation-iff.html), this consultation made further progress on developing the methodology to estimate IFFs resulting from three areas: IFF associated with commercial and tax-related practices, IFFs resulting from illegal markets activities and IFFs arising from corruption.
