2014 - 2017 (Completed) Project number: 233823/H30

The project will examine the formal and informal regulation of cross border flows of natural resource wealth, with a particular emphasis on the crossborder networks that are at the heart of much of the illicit flows in and from Africa.

The primary objective is to illuminate and characterize the role of cross border networks capital flight and natural resource extraction in order to understand how they operate with regard to the state as well as the forces of international capital and commerce.

The secondary objective is to tease out what kind of policy implications this have for attempts to regulate extractive industries and prevent illicit cross-border flows of capital and reosurces.
