About this book

The Palgrave Handbook of Criminal and Terrorism Financing Law focuses on how criminal and terrorist assets pose significant and unrelenting threats to the integrity, security, and stability of contemporary societies. In response to the funds generated by or for organised crime and transnational terrorism, strategies have been elaborated at national, regional, and international levels for laws, organisations and procedures, and economic systems. Reflecting on these strands, this handbook brings together leading experts from different jurisdictions across Europe, America, Asia, and Africa and from different disciplines, including law, criminology, political science, international studies, and business. The authors examine the institutional and legal responses, set within the context of both policy and practice, with a view to critiquing these actions on the grounds of effective delivery and compliance with legality and rights. In addition, the book draws upon the experiences of the many senior practitioners and policy-makers who participated in the research project which was funded by a major Arts and Humanities Research Council grant. This comprehensive collection is a must-read for academics and practitioners alike with an interest in money laundering, terrorism financing, security, and international relations.

Reviews

“Money is the motive for organized crime and the essential ingredient for terror. Yet our efforts to “follow the money” have proven inadequate. In this impressive collection of essays, diverse experts explore distinct but interlocking aspects of our efforts to combat financial crime. The result is a valuable study of AML/CFT and a collective argument that it is time to fundamentally shift the paradigm”. (John Cassara, former U.S. intelligence officer, Treasury Special Agent, and AML/CFT author) 

“The shift of emphasis in fighting serious crime and addressing the treats of terrorism from the investigation and prosecution of substantive offences, to pursuing wealth associated with things we don’t like, has created a new dimension to the criminal justice system. Within which the focus is on interdicting and disrupting the flow of funds within criminal and subversive structures and placing obligations on those who mind other people’s wealth to generate intelligence. Three eminent scholars - Professors Walker, King and Gurulé have assembled a galaxy of experts in this ‘biblical work’ on almost every conceivable aspect of what is one of the most dynamic and - if you handle wealth, highly significant concerns. A unique and astounding feat of intellect and perception!” (Barry Rider OBE LLD, Professorial Fellow, Centre of Development Studies, University of Cambridge, UK)
