Making Them Pay
This concluding chapter compares the patterns of strengths and weaknesses among the previous case studies and provides some policy recommendations. It explains that, given the inherent difficulty of international legal action, the problems faced by victim countries, which almost by definition have limited resources, and the fact that even “bad guys” are allowed due process and human rights in rule-of-law democracies, it seems that asset recovery as a purely criminal law strategy will seldom work. A more hopeful strategy is to move away from the criminal justice system and interstate law, and instead use a mix of strategies pursued by states as well as non-state actors, from NGOs, to vulture funds, to private individuals.
