Thoughts on the Taskforce on a Transatlantic Response to Illicit Finance (TARIF):
I joined TARIF because it's clear that, without close coordination between Washington and London, we're never going to make headway in the fight against illicit finance. If we're to win this fight against kleptocracy, strengthening the trans-Atlantic alliance is an absolute must.
Adjunct Fellow, Hudson Institute Kleptocracy Initiative
TARIF aims to strengthen global democracy by identifying viable ways in which the UK and US can combine efforts in tackling illicit finance.
