Welcome to the Country Profiles section of the Knowledge Centre.
One of the goals of assetrecovery.org is to provide accurate and specific information on subjects important to Asset Recovery (AR) work such as the relevant legislation and authorities, legal frameworks, case studies and other practical tips and techniques to advance investigations in tracing stolen assets, seeking international legal and administrative cooperation and the processes involved in an asset recovery case. The country profiles section has information from a number of financial centres and developing countries and helps you identify the important elements necessary to begin working with a country to either obtain legal or administrative cooperation to make progress in a corruption investigation involving stolen assets.
Select a country from the box below or from the left navigation pane. Each country's information is organized under the same subtopics for consistency. As this is a work in progress some countries may contain more detailed information than others. For some countries, some of the topics are not applicable. We make every attempt to ensure that the information is accurate, however it is possible that some information is incomplete or missing. We very much welcome your feedback and if we feature your country and you are aware of legislation or mechanisms that we have missed, please email us using the feedback button.
