NWO-grant for research into money laundering

18 May 2021
For high rolling criminals, money launderers are indispensable in spending their ill-gotten gains in the legal economy. Recently, the Dutch Research Council (NWO) provided a grant for a 4-year research project focussed on who these money launderers are, why they involve themselves with criminal money, and to what extent they collaborate with each other in money laundering networks.

The research project will be carried out by Jo-Anne Kramer and is part of a collaboration between the Faculty of Law, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (Prof. Edward Kleemans), NSCR (Prof. Arjan Blokland) and the National Police (Dr. Melvin Soudijn). The research project is financed through the funding instrument NWO Open Competition SSH 2020.

“We had to wait a while to receive the good news”, Edward Kleemans said. “Deadlines were postponed because of Covid19 and further delays were caused by the hack at NWO. However, we are very glad that the project can start now and look forward to an excellent collaboration between VU, NSCR, and the National Police.”
