Africa loses over $150 billion annually to illicit capital flight. The primary source of revenue leakage is corporate tax avoidance from money that should have been remitted to the national government tax bases.
This money is siphoned through transactions between subsidiaries of the same parent company via methods such as transfer pricing, affects almost every industry in Africa, from physical wealth such as minerals, to intangible wealth, like the trademarks of beverages. Yet, the narrow geography of corruption – public looting for private gain – has been constructed to exclude economic justice outside of government corruption, despite public officials stealing less than 5% of all illicit flight.
Broadening the geography of corruption to include economic justice requires investigative capacity training that breaks the silos of knowledge and expertise while also visibilising the root causes of inequality in Africa’s political economies. This course providing cross-examination, forensics, financial, data and other training, allows for Africa’s leading investigators to learn techniques, and acquire the tools, needed to ‘see’ and expose financial opacity.
