Transatlantic Response to Illicit Finance Taskforce Member
Thoughts on the Taskforce:
Being a child of the what Canadian historians call the Transatlantic Triangle (Canada-US-UK), this seemed like the perfect opportunity to explore how two countries that are close to my heart, which are undergoing their own metamorphoses yet are joined by shared values and a sense of purpose, can come together and work more effectively to tackle the lifeblood of perpetrators of horrific crimes (namely illicit financial flows), systemic corruption, and kleptocracies to make the world a better place for the future of our children.
TARIF aims to strengthen global democracy by identifying viable ways in which the UK and US can combine efforts in tackling illicit finance.
