'Following the money that funds terror and motivates organised crime is not a new strategy. However, much of what has been done has not had significant results - at least measured in traditional law enforcement terms. We need to learn from those systems that have better disrupted the criminal pipe line and increasingly think of new strategies and devices. This excellent book, edited by two leading scholars in criminal justice, provides in its treasury of experience if not all the answers - certainly some. Anyone concerned with taking the profit out of crime or pursuing terrorists more effectively will not be disappointed.'Barry Rider, University of Cambridge, UK
Adopting a multi-disciplinary and comparative approach, this book focuses on the emerging and innovative aspects of attempts to target the accumulated assets of those engaged in criminal and terrorist activity, organized crime and corruption. With contributions from leading international academics and practitioners in the fields of law, economics, financial management, criminology, sociology and political science, the book explores law and practice in countries with significant problems and experiences, revealing new insights into these dilemmas. It also discusses the impact of the ‘follow-the-money’ approach on human rights while also assessing effectiveness.
