For over a decade, the Financial Transparency Coalition (FTC) has been a platform for leading civil society organizations working together, through shared research, joint advocacy and pooled resources, to demand that IFFs are curtailed. The 8th international conference of the Financial Transparency Coalition will bring together civil society leaders, experts – from diverse fields including taxation, economics, corruption, human rights, anti-money laundering – to discuss the intertwined challenges facing institutions charged with leading the 2020 processes to address IFFs.
The conference will be structured around three inter-related questions:
- What are the key challenges to tackling IFFs for the next 5-10 years, following the culmination in 2020 of processes being led at the G20, OECD, and United Nations, and specifically how can cooperation on IFF issues be strengthened?
- How can the obstacles to participation of different voices from the Global South in multilateral processes related to IFFs be overcome?
- What steps are needed, by whom, and through what processes, to place human rights and gender equality at the heart of future multilateral discussions and agreements on IFFs?
- Identify the markers of change in the international financial system over the next 5-10 years and the concrete actions required to achieve changes.
- Facilitate the meaningful participation of different voices from the Global South in multilateral processes to challenge the international institutional architecture.
- Establish and strengthen intermediary channels of support for underrepresented countries to effectively voice their concerns at international platforms.
- Supporting on-going initiatives and developing well-rounded proposals for strengthening financial transparency across the spectrum (internal).
