15 Credits SPRING

Aims/Description: This module will explore international measures to prevent money laundering. Initially, the module will identify the key components of the money laundering process. It will then analyse current and emerging international money laundering typologies across multiple business sectors. The response of the international community spearheaded by the Financial Action Task Force (`FATF`) will then be examined. The way in which the international anti-money laundering recommendations made by FATF have been implemented across multiple jurisdictions will then be critically analysed. The focus of the module will be on anti-money laundering measures in the UK, EU and US.
