Venue: European Parliament  |  City: Ixelles, Belgium

For too long the corrupt have been able to steal from the public purse with impunity. One of the best ways to address this is to prevent people from profiting from the proceeds of corruption. Asset recovery – the process of returning stolen assets to their rightful owners – is the new front line in the fight against corruption.

What role can the EU play within the framework of its external relations and international cooperation and trade policies? Western countries, including EU member states, have the responsibility not just to return confiscated assets to their nations of origin but also to repatriate these responsibly. Returned assets must not end up back in the hands of corrupt ruling elites, but should serve the citizens of the countries they are taken from.

The workshop will look at two ongoing legal forfeiture cases related to two countries, Uzbekistan and Equatorial Guinea. EU officials, experts and civil society actors will debate what to do with assets once they have been confiscated through due judicial process, and how assets can be responsibly repatriated in states where grand corruption and systemic human rights abuses are rife
