Welcome to the Asset Recovery Forum
The Asset Recovery Forum serves as a public information platform for practitioners and non-practitioners to access and share information on asset recovery and related matters.
It offers the possibility to find and contact fellow practitioners from around the world, take online educational courses, create and respond to blogs, as well as share and react to news, trends and events about asset recovery.
Well firstly there needs to be the desire, both in terms of public consensus as well as at governmental level, though some could argue these should be one and the same in an ideal world. Subsequently, the rule of law underlines the principles of a democratic government and there is no scope, in most cases, to deviate from the law, however damning the circumstances might be.
