What evidence exists on the issue of illegal cross-border flows of funds, goods and services in South Asia (Pakistan, India, Nepal and Bangladesh) and their impact on corruption? Please provide specific case studies of these processes in action.
To address and combat illegal cross-border flows, cross-country cooperation and coordination is needed to prevent, detect and sanction the corruption that contributes to the problem. Efforts have to look at specific interventions that can strengthen borders as well as broader governance issues that can help to build the transparency, accountability and integrity of institutions and key actors.
