About this book

This book explains the consequences of global policy initiatives against money laundering, terrorist financing, and tax evasion on financial centres located in offshore jurisdictions in the Caribbean region. Adding to the existing literature by detailing international policy initiatives against money laundering and tax evasion from the early 1920s to date, this book examines the factors that have contributed to their gradual development over time, their role in contributing to money laundering, terrorist financing, and tax evasion, the international policy initiatives that came about to address these financial crimes, as well as the  consequences of these policy initiatives on the legislative systems, institutions, offshore business sectors, and economies of these financial centres.

About the authors

Aretha Campbell has worked in the offshore financial services industry for the past 16 years and is a recent PhD graduate from the University of Salamanca, Spain in the area of Rule of Law and Global Governance. Her research interests center on financial global governance, transnational policy organizations, money laundering, terrorist financing, tax evasion, and offshore financial centres (OFCs) with a specific focus on the Caribbean region. She aims to find ways to mitigate the risks associated with money laundering, terrorist financing, and tax evasion in the Caribbean region, and to identify alternative means to further develop the offshore financial services industry with a view to strengthening their local economies. She is an adjunct course coordinator at the University of the West Indies Open Campus and an affiliated postdoctoral researcher at the University of Antwerp.
