More illicit finance leaves Africa than enters through foreign direct investment and aid combined. African countries have a responsibility to fight corruption within Africa. Countries elsewhere in the world, that allow their professional enablers to operate unchecked, have a responsibility to close their doors to money stolen from Africa. 

Join us online for the live-stream of our session from the Mo Ibrahim Governance Weekend on Friday 28 April, 12:00-14:00 GMT+1, where our expert panel will: 

  • Examine the evidence and research on the scale and tactics of rogue enablers;
  • Highlight the impact of the enabling of illicit finance on African countries;
  • Identify examples where source and destination countries working together have been able to address the problem of professional enablers facilitating corruption in Africa;
  • Explore concrete solutions to tackle the role of professionals in enabling dirty money from Africa.
