30 Sep

asap orangeIn collaboration with its partners, (KCL, UEL and Notre Dame University) Academics Stand Against Poverty are holding a conference on Illicit Financial Flows. Every year $1 trillion is spirited out of countries through corruption, money laundering and corporate tax evasion. Such financial losses aggravate poverty and weaken institutions needed to sustain livelihoods. At this conference we present our research and a proposals for institutional reforms that can become part of the post-MDG agenda. We invite you to join the global debate about illicit financial flows and discuss the way forward.

Thomas Pogge, Leitner Professor of Philosophy and international affairs and Founding Director of the International Justice programme at Yale University, as well as Professor of Philosophy and Global Justice in the Dickson Poon School of Law, King’s College London, will be speaking at the conference. His talk will be followed by a panel discussion and workshops with ASAP’s partners (KCL, UEL and University of Notre Dame). ASAP are inviting you to attend the conference and contribute to the global debate about illicit financial flows and discuss the way forward with their goals.
