This paper explores some of the mechanisms by which funds recovered from corrupt activities can be directed towards corruption prevention measures. This is a substantial research task and an important piece of policy development. There are several strategic ways forward, and once a path has been agreed upon, further research can shape the policy.

This paper has three parts:
1. An outline of some of the conceptual and policy issues;
2. Practical examples from Australia (where the researchers work);
3. Examples from other policy domains and other jurisdictions (such as consumer law, or false claims legislation).

This report should form a platform of options for any country which wishes to pursue the use of recovered funds for corruption prevention.
