The FATF Standards and Unintended Consequences: Part 1: Assessing the Past
Time & Location
About the Event
"As the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) considers ways to mitigate the unintended consequences of its financial crime standards, this three-part webinar series will assess the FATF’s work on this issue to-date, identify current challenges and a look ahead to future ways in which its standards might be manipulated.
In early 2021, the FATF announced it would be launching a new research initiative "to study and mitigate the unintended consequences resulting from the incorrect implementation of FATF Standards.” It identified four main affected areas: (1) de-risking; (2) financial exclusion; (3) suppression of NPOs or the NPO sector as a whole; and (4) threats to fundamental human rights.
The first webinar in this series will consider FATF’s past efforts related to not-for-profit organisations, money service businesses and correspondent banking.

Lia van Broekhoven, Executive Director, Human Security Collective
Veronica Studsgaard, Founder & CEO, IAMTN
Victoria Ibezim-Ohaeri, Executive Director, Spaces for Change
Wendy Delmar, CEO, Caribbean Association of Banks
