The international community is well placed to make significant progress in asset recovery. National authorities have made some progress in developing the institutional and legal structures foreseen under the United Nations Convention against Corruption. Institutions such as the World Bank/UNODC Stolen Asset Recovery Initiative and INTERPOL’s Anti-Corruption Office are supporting national authorities’ asset recovery and anticorruption programs. Recent commitments by the international community, such as the Leaders’ Statement at the September 2009 G20 Summit, signal continued high level support. The challenge going forward is to accelerate the pace of implementation and to translate goodwill into results. The purpose of this policy note is to explore how the international community and national authorities can meet this challenge.
