Perspectives 3: Asset recovery and wildlife trafficking
Illegal wildlife trade (IWT) is in the global spotlight thanks to its alleged role in triggering the coronavirus pandemic. It is sparking vivid debate among communities of experts not just in conservation, but in business, finance, technology, anti-corruption forces and law.
One such debate is taking place in the ranks of litigation service providers and economic crime experts of the International Academy of Financial Crime Litigators and IWT specialists at the Basel Institute on Governance.
This short series presents their different expert perspectives on topics crucial to combating IWT.
In this edition, Gretta Fenner, Managing Director of the Basel Institute on Governance and Keith Oliver, Head of International at Peters & Peters Solicitors LLP together with his colleague Amalia Neenan, Legal Researcher, explore the role of asset recovery in combating wildlife trafficking. Gretta Fenner and Keith Oliver are Founding Fellows of the International Academy of Financial Crime Litigators.
