Illicit financial flows (IFF) became an international concern in the late 2000s and are now an established policy concern in the development context. Still, policymakers have yet to address important questions about putting anti-IFF programmes into practice. This blog series is a policy critique with reflections on where the anti-IFF agenda can progress and contribute to achieving the sustainable development goals.
