The Asset Recovery Handbook, prepared by an international team of experts, draws on the experience of a wide range of countries and legal traditions. Designed as a quick reference guide, it describes approaches to recovering proceeds of corruption located in foreign jurisdictions, identifies the difficulties that practitioners are likely to encounter, suggests strategic and tactical options to address the challenges, and introduces good practices. It also provides reference tools, case studies, and practical resources such as sample intelligence reports, applications for court orders, and mutual legal assistance requests.
