Briefing to Feature U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions

Could Ukraine’s crisis have been prevented? How are rogue states and corrupt regimes shaping U.S. defense and foreign policy? The co-existence of political corruption and organized crime has not been dealt with from within the countries in Eastern Europe. Countries of Western Europe are major beneficiaries of illicit financial outflows which are hemorrhaging the treasuries of the Eastern Europe. U.S. principled leadership is crucial to mitigate the impact of economic, financial and security risks emerging on the European continent. How can the current legislative framework and on-going efforts of asset forfeiture, and prevention of money laundering be improved to address the risks for the U.S. and Europe?

Speakers will address the manifestation, mechanisms and consequences of weak rule of law states, political corruption, money laundering and illicit financial outflows with a reference to real cases. The speakers will also highlight solutions and principled recommendations to address U.S. and Europe’s economic, financial and security risks.
