Needs assessment on tools and methods of financial investigation in the European Union

Summary

The central question of this study is to assess which tools would help law enforcement best in stepping up the use of financial investigations and cross-border cooperation in this field. Financial investigations are carried out within several contexts: criminal investigations (including conviction based asset confiscation), civil investigations (including non-conviction based asset confiscation), tax investigations, and social service investigations. This study focuses on financial investigations in the context of criminal investigations.
