Episode 15: The Illicit Finance Dimensions of the Integrated Review

The UK’s Integrated Review, published in March 2021, provided considerable indications of the UK’s ambition to tackle money laundering and other financial crimes.

Matthew Redhead speaks to CFCS colleagues Tom Keatinge, Helena Wood and Emil Dall about the attention given by the Review to – respectively – illicit finance, UK economic crime, and sanctions, as a dimension of the UK’s foreign, security and defence policy. RUSI’s Keith Ditcham lends to this discussion his serious and organised crime perspective.
