Illicit Financial Flows  



In December 2008, Global Financial Integrity (GFI) released “Illicit Financial Flows from Developing Countries: 2002-2006,” a groundbreaking report which used World Bank and IMF data to estimate the quantity and patterns of illicit financial flows coming out of developing countries. The report found that illicit financial flows out of developing countries were approximately $1.06 trillion in 2006, and helped propel a global movement toward the curtailment of illicit financial flows.


Global Financial Integrity's latest update of this original report, Illicit Financial Flows from Developing Countries 2001-2010, features a new, broader, more accurate, methodolgy to estimate illicit financial flows. Below, you can not only read the report, but also explore the data using our latest interactive tools.
