How we measure corruption shapes how we view and address the problem but measuring corruption is also extraordinarily difficult and complex.
The Global Programme for Measuring Corruption ('GPMC') recently held a 'think-in' at their HQ in the International Anti-Corruption Academy, in Vienna, to examine one area that is particularly hard to measure – Illicit Financial Flows, or IFFs, and specifically the IFFs that arise from grand corruption.
The GPMC assembled a team of practitioners and academics to debate and discuss the topic over three days in Vienna.
In this podcast recorded at the 'think-in' Tymon Kiepe discusses: his work in this field, what beneficial ownership transparency means, its relevance to tracking illicit financial flows and all the important developments around ownership registers.
If you enjoyed this conversation, and would like to listen to a round-up of the whole 'think-in' we have just the podcast for you.
In it the co-organisers Liz David Barrett and Ken Okamura - discuss why they chose the topic, what they learnt from the 'think-in' and how it will inform future work.
We also have a podcast with Matt Collin (the academic Tymon mentions in this podcast) discussing a working paper (he's co-authored) about the impact of the UK’s new laws on beneficial ownership transparency.
If you would like to read an overview of the whole 'think-in' here’s our key insights brief published afterwards.
