At the public lecture on 5 November 2019, Prof. Dr. Beat Brändli from the University of St. Gallen will talk about the emergence and development of the anti-money laundering system in Switzerland. The evolution and further development of the international fight against money laundering will also be discussed, as well as how these relate to national efforts.
The event aims to present the most important lessons of the past and the challenges for the future from a Swiss perspective. Due to the interdependence of the international financial markets, however, corresponding remarks will also contain implications for international cooperation and be able to withstand a universal (global) perspective.
