Ethics and Good Governance for Public-Private Partnerships in the Framework of Countering Financial Crime – 10 Recommendations: CTF Online Symposium 13

14 June 2023
15:00 - 16:00

In this CTF Online Symposium, Stephen Reimer of the Centre for Financial Crime and Security Studies will be joined by Prof. Dr. Marieke de Goede and Maja Dehouck from the University of Amsterdam to discuss the importance of addressing the ethical and legal aspects of Public-Private Partnerships in the framework of countering financial crime. They will propose 10 best practice recommendations, grounded in a three-year academic study.

Public-Private Partnerships are omnipresent in discussions on the future of AML/CFT. They have sprung up in more than 20 countries worldwide in the past years, and their number is steadily growing. In her new report, Maja Dehouck argues for a more comprehensive good governance framework for Public-Private Partnerships. What more should stakeholders in PPPs, such as FIUs, financial institutions, policymakers, NPOs and privacy advocates, do to bring PPPs into line with fundamental rights, democratic principles and ethical practice, as they continue their efforts in combatting financial crime?

Prof. Dr. Marieke de Goede is Professor of Political Science and Dean of the Faculty of Humanities at the University of Amsterdam. She has nearly 20 years of experience in research on counter-terrorism and security practices. She is the author of ‘Speculative Security: The Politics of Pursuing Terrorist Monies’ (University of Minnesota Press) and was Principal Investigator of Project FOLLOW: Following the Money from Transaction to Trial.

Maja Dehouck is a researcher and PhD Candidate at the Department of Political Science at the University of Amsterdam. She holds an LLM in International and European Law and an MSc in Social and Cultural Anthropology. Her areas of research include anti-financial crime and the trade in cultural goods.
