Over the last few years money laundering has become a global and enormous worldwide phenomenon therefore no country is immune. Estimates have to be treated with caution but the International Monetary Fund estimated over ten years ago that the aggregate size of money laundering was somewhere between 2-5% of the world GDP (between 800 million and 2 trillion US dollars in today’s terms). This book considers the problem of money laundering globally and in Kosovo especially which is a cash-based economy and makes vulnerable to money laundering activities and terrorist financing. It emphasizes the definition, trends, methods, effects and phases of money laundering and also explains the role of the national and international organizations and initiatives in fight against money laundering such as Financial Action Task Force, OECD, United Nations, World Bank, International Monetary Fund etc.
