Thoughts on the Taskforce on a Transatlantic Response to Illicit Finance (TARIF):
The UK and US working together provides the backbone of a global alliance which can be deployed for the benefit of all countries … we have a period of political stability in both countries, a shared will to tackle problems which have a global impact, and a shared domestic reform agenda which presents a unique opportunity to make improvements relevant and permanent.

TARIF aims to strengthen global democracy by identifying viable ways in which the UK and US can combine efforts in tackling illicit finance.
