Combating money laundering and terrorist financing : a model of best practice for the financial sector, the professions and other designated businesses ( Book )
6 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 201 libraries worldwide
Money laundering is a worldwide problem. It involves hundreds of billions of dollars that are laundered through the international financial institutions. With increasing globalisation and liberalisation of financial systems, countries are becoming more vulnerable to the risks of money laundering and its contagious effects. The work of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) in formulating global policies to combat money laundering has been addressing the changes in the methods and techniques used by money launderers as they respond to evolving counter measures. The original FATF's 40 Recommendations were drawn up in 1990. Following the terrorist attacks on the United States of 11 September 2001, the FATF issued a further 9 "Special Recommendations" to combat terrorist financing. A comprehensive review of the Recommendations was completed in June 2003. These recommendations have been endorsed by the Commonwealth for implementation.The Commonwealth has been in the forefront of international efforts to combat money laundering and terrorist financing, particularly through supporting its developing member countries to implement comprehensive AntiMoney Laundering (AML) and Combating Financing of Terrorism (CFT) systems that comply with global standards. It published A Model of Best Practice for Combating Money Laundering in the Financial Sector in 2000.This is a revision of the 2000 publication. It incorporates the new international standard arising from the revised FATF 40 Recommendations and the Special 9 Recommendations.It is expected that the manual will be helpful for policymakers, regulators, financial institutions, the professions and other designated businesses in their efforts to develop viable AML/CFT systems. The publication is divided into three main parts: the first deals with global issues, strategies and standards; the second with national issues and in particular, national strategy formulation; and the third with financial and professional sector procedures

14 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 198 libraries worldwide
In this book, the authors highlight the lack of attention to employment, and especially informal employment, in poverty reductions strategies and point to the links between being informally employed, being a woman of a man and being poor.

Women's human rights : leading international and national cases ( Book )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 197 libraries worldwide
"The last two decades have seen major advances in the legal protection of the human rights of women around the world. A series of international and national court cases has developed an important body of jurisprudence that has been relied on by courts and advocates in many countries to support women's claims for equality and the full enjoyment of human rights and fundamental freedoms." "Growing out of a series of judicial colloquia organised by the Commonwealth Secretariat, this compilation brings together a selection of over fifty significant cases from international and national courts. The cases are grouped by theme and presented in full text or edited format. Together they highlight the way in which courts have used international human rights norms and national constitutional standards to contribute to women's equality. A detailed introduction provides a summary of the significance of the cases and references further material available on women's human rights." "Cases decided under United Nations human rights treaties, the European and American Conventions on Human Rights and other international instruments, as well as cases decided by national courts in Asia, Africa, Europe, Australasia and North America are all included. The compilation will be of interest to all those with an interest in the advancement of the human rights of women especially equality advocates, lawyers and judges, scholars and students."--Jacket
Towards a new Bretton Woods : challenges for the world financial and trading system by Commonwealth Secretariat( Book )
6 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 189 libraries worldwide
A sound longer-run international economic system would not normally encounter problems as severe as those which have characterised the past few years; on the infrequent occasions when it nevertheless did, it would not impose such heavy costs upon those nations and people least able to protect themselves against externally created shocks. Prime objectives within a reformed international system must be improved stabilisation mechanisms and contracyclical policies, together with improved protection for those most affected when instabilities and shocks nevertheless persist

Gender mainstreaming in poverty eradication and the millennium development goals : a handbook for policy-makers and other stakeholders by Naila Kabeer( Book )
10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 175 libraries worldwide
"In this book, Naila Kabeer brings together a set of arguments, findings and lessons from the development literature which help to explain why gender equality merits specific attention from policy-makers, practitioners, researchers and other stakeholders committed to the pursuit of pro-poor and human-centred development." "Neglect of gender inequalities in the distribution of resources, responsibilities and power in the processes of economic accumulation and social reproduction has a high cost, not only for women themselves but also for their children and other dependents and for the development of society as a whole. This book highlights the interconnections between production and reproduction within different societies, and women's critical role in straddling both, and points to the various synergies, trade-offs and externalities which these generate."--Jacket
Gender mainstreaming in conflict transformation : building sustainable peace by Commonwealth Secretariat( Book )
5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 170 libraries worldwide
"Issues of socio-economic development, democracy and peace are inextricably linked to gender equality. The main argument to Gender Mainstreaming in Conflict Transformation: Building Sustainable Peace is that gender equality needs to be placed on the policy and programme agenda of the entire spectrum of peace and conflict-related initiatives and activities in order to achieve conflict transformation. These include conflict prevention and early warning mechanisms; peace negotiations and agreements; peacekeeping, disarmament, demobilisation and reintegration; truth and reconciliation commissions; post-conflict reconstruction; and peace building and peace education." "This book will be of interest to those working to achieve gender equality, peace, democracy and sustainable development, particularly in situations of armed and other forms of conflict."--Jacket
