ALDA organised the seminar on “Tackling money laundering and tax heavens in Europe” taking place at the European Parliament, in Brussels, on 9 October.

The seminar is held within the framework of the project Tackling Illegal Economies – TIE, funded by the EU Prevention of and Fight against Organised Crime Programme (ISEC).

The project is implemented in strong cooperation with the associations LIBERA, European Alternatives

and other nine organisations and university institutions coming from six EU countries. The aim of the project is to create grounds for cooperation between the judiciary, media, civil society and academia in Europe in identifying and promoting ways to undermine the profitability of crime by means of the aggression to criminal assets.

Within this framework, four seminars have been held from September 2013, respectively in London, Berlin, Stara Zagora and Paris aimed at identifying good practice in tackling criminal assets and three academic researches have been developed on this topic. The aforementioned initiatives have identified money laundering and tax heavens as a key element to be further analysed and discussed. The upcoming event in Brussels will be an occasion to present and discuss the outcomes of the first year activity and hand to European institutions a set of proposals to contribute to effectively tackle organised crime across Europe. The event is sponsored by Ms Eleonora FORENZA (MEP) and will bring together representatives of the European institutions, national, regional and local authorities, academics and journalists with expertise in financial crimes as well as representatives of civil society associations. Please find here the draft agenda of the event (.pdf).

A limit number of places is still available and the registration will be on a “first come, first served” basis.
