Illicit financial flows (IFFs) are a significant challenge for the countries of the Western Balkans. This new GI-TOC report looks at current trends of IFFs in Albania, Kosovo and North Macedonia. It examines the components of IFFs, which are the means by which they are generated, and the channels by which they are moved through national, regional and transnational regions. IFFs often end up commingled with or laundered into the legitimate economy, or held offshore in secrecy jurisdictions.
This webinar intends to kick-start a conversation around key issues of IFFs in Albania, Kosovo and North Macedonia and the broader Western Balkans region. A 1.5 hour long virtual webinar will draw together insights from experts on the topic in the three countries and generate a focused discussion on strategic, effective and creative responses to IFFs in the Western Balkans.
