March 21 – Dirty Money – the cost of Tax havens and Money Laundering

Tax-havens like the Cayman Islands have been linked to terrorism, dictatorships and money laundering. With exposes such as the Panama-papers and recent news about foul play in several large banks such as Swedbank and Nordea, the magnitude of the offshore banking industry has been brought to light. This lecture will adress the problems facing the international community, and what can be done to protect global financial integrity.
