Founded in 2003, The Basel Institute on Governance is an independent think tank that specialises in the areas of good governance at the public and corporate level with a focus on anti-corruption and anti-money laundering (AML).   The Institute has extensive experience in analysing and evaluating legal systems, practices and regulations of countries in the fields of combating corruption and money laundering, as well as in the asset recovery process, and in benchmarking them to regional and international standards.  The Institute has gained a reputation for its expertise in capacity building, research and policy and case advice. Its members consist of experienced practitioners, experts and academics. The Institute also houses the International Centre for Asset Recovery (ICAR), which was founded in 2006. One of the key service areas of the ICAR is the development and provision of on-site asset recovery training programmes to build the capacities of developing countries in tracing and recovering corrupt assets abroad. As such, each training programme of the ICAR is tailor-made to the precise needs of the country. As a result, a critical preparatory component in the development of such training programmes is the comprehensive analysis of the existing local legislative asset recovery (e.g., international co-operation, seizure, confiscation and repatriation) and anti-corruption frameworks. Such analysis regularly includes comparisons with regional and international frameworks with other existing national legislative frameworks considered to be effective in the area of asset recovery and anti-corruption. Thereby the Institute has collected substantial experience in working with and analysing various national anti-corruption legislations.
