Illicit Financial Flows: Why should we claim these resources for gender, economic and social justice?


 This brief focuses on international illicit financial flows (IFFs) and why these ‘lost’ resources should be claimed for gender, economic and social justice.

It will explore the following three issues:

 1. Understand the basic concept of IFFs and highlight their disproportional gender impact, in relation to the drain in developing countries of critical resources, for the advancement of women’s human rights.

2. Unveil the current legal and political frameworks that allow multinational corporations to benefit from tax abuse to the detriment of people and planet.

3. Provide recommendations, from a feminist perspective, on how to demand transparency and corporate accountability in order to curb illicit financial flows.
