Illicit Financial Flows Undermining Gender Justice

This paper provides an introductory analysis of the ways in which Illicit Financial Flows (IFFs) and gender justice are connected, with a focus on Latin America. It argues that confronting and dismantling the global enablers and secrecy jurisdictions will be beneficial not only for transparency and global equality but also for achieving greater gender equality and the respect, protection and fulfilment of the human rights of women and girls. The analysis ends with a list of policy recommendations for the global as well as the national level and thus provides guidance for combating tax evasion, avoidance and dodging, as well as money laundering derived from criminal activities.
