This special analysis look at five initial areas for the asset recovery community to consider in the light of the covid-19 pandemic. It has been put together based on insights of the Basel Institute's asset recovery team. It covers: 

  • Technology and the digital divide
  • Legal and bureaucratic hurdles to recovering stolen assets
  • Political will amid increased social pressures
  • Raised stakes in ongoing debates, including over the use of returned assets
  • The wider role of asset recovery in anti-corruption and sustainable development

The analysis is not meant to be exhaustive but to encourage feedback, debate and thinking outside the box.
