time and place

Tuesday 9 November 2021, 13:00–14:15
SNS, Jakobsbergsgatan 18 i Stockholm

What does the fight against money laundering look like? Is the regulatory framework sufficiently effective when it comes to detecting and addressing money laundering? And what is the possible role of whistleblowers in terms of combating money laundering?

Economist Giancarlo Spagnolo and Theo Nyreröd, Ph.D. candidate in law, present their new SNS report examining the effectiveness of current anti-money laundering regulations and how whistleblowing may be used as a means for addressing more difficult cases of money laundering in Europe. Representatives from the banking sector, the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority and the Financial Intelligence Unit at the Swedish Police National Operations Department comment on the analysis and conclusions presented by these scholars while also offering their own perspectives.
