PhD Researcher- AML/CFT Regulations and Remittances


In my current doctoral project, I look at the emergence of AML/CFT Regulations and institutions in Nigeria and Somalia. I investigate how these policies are implemented and whether and if local (African) agency is embedded in those regulations. I also investigate how the implementation of these regulations in those countries can limit access to Banking services by diasporic communities and their remittances.
