Launch of joint OECD and StAR report - "Few and Far: The Hard Facts on Stolen Asset Recovery"

This report updates the 2011 edition of this report, tracking the asset recovery efforts by OECD countries between 2010 and 2012. Compared to the last reporting period (2006 to 2009), we observe a significant increase in the freezing of stolen assets. More assets have been returned, but compared to what is estimated to have been stolen, the recovered sums are low. The report also contains key recommendations for development agencies.
