Strengthening EU asset recovery and
sanction tracing against transnational
high-level corruption

Unraveling the Threads of High-Level Corruption

KLEPTOTRACE is a project co-funded by the European Commission, to address kleptocracy, transnational high-level corruption and sanction circumvention in the EU.

To achieve these objectives, we will monitor corruption and EU sanctions evasion, by also developing a data-driven toolbox. We will provide training and offer policy reccomendations to strengthen EU authorities’ capabilities and raise awareness of transnational corruption risks.
