This is the fifth time that Tax Justice Network Africa (TJNA) is convening this a meeting of some of the greatest minds on the continent (and beyond) to discuss pertinent and emerging issues on the IFFs agenda.
The discussions this year built on those had during previous similar fora, providing a platform for different stakeholders from Africa and beyond to articulate problems and propose solutions towards curbing illicit financial flows from the continent.
PAC 2017 brought together actors drawn from governments, CSOs, research, academia and other relevant players to deliberate on the emerging attempts to recast and reshape the IFFs narrative and methodology and what this would signify for the struggle against IFFs in Africa. The Conference will also provide opportunity to take stock of the success made so far and challenges facing African governments in their efforts to honour their commitments to stem IFFs through the implementation of the High Level Panel (HLP) recommendations.
The discussions will contribute and feed into ongoing efforts by the Consortium to Stem IFFs from Africa which was established as a follow-up mechanism to support the implementation of the recommendations of the High Level Panel on Illicit Financial Flows from Africa. The Panel’s report was the single most important document underpinning the adoption of SDG target 16.4, to reduce IFFs.
