Abstract

This article examines the growth of money-laundering in conjunction with the associated development of offshore finance centres (OFCs) located in small places such as islands or microstates in the Caribbean and elsewhere.

concerning money-laundering and OFCs, such as the workings of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), and the regional Task Forces such as the Caribbean Task Force. Finally, the article explores the changing way `offshore’ is being constructed as exemplified by rising onshore pressure from the OECD, G7, the EU and, most recently, the UK government, with its growing concern demonstrated by the 1998 unprecedented Home Office and FCO reviews of both British Isles and Caribbean OFCs.
