The Nexus between Corruption and Money Laundering: Typologies and Policy Responses

Dr DA Chaikin; A/Prof JC Sharman

Business Law

Project Summary

Australia has sought to take a major role in fighting corruption and money laundering, an aspiration that requires a thorough knowledge of each problem as well as the links between them. Corruption has contributed to political instability, state failure and economic underdevelopment in our region. The fight against international money laundering is a central part of safeguarding Australia from transnational crime. Our findings on the links between corruption and money laundering, and our suite of typologies, will assist Australian federal and state governments as well as businesses, to prevent and combat both types of crime.
