De Koker, Louis
MetadataShow full item record
Background: The financial action task force (FATF) standards are designed to combat money laundering, terrorist financing and proliferation financing. Threats of Russian employment of nuclear weapons in its conflict with Ukraine, continuing North Korean ballistic missile testing and expansion of its intercontinental ballistic missile capacity and concerns about the availability of uranium on the black market heighten the relevance of effective counter proliferation financing measures. This is however also the area where FATF standards are at their weakest, mainly due to a lack of global consensus among nuclear powers.
