    Abstract This report argues that a small but significant change to the international anti-money laundering regime – the laws, regulations, and procedures used to tackle money laundering – could have enormous consequences for the fight against human trafficking and forced labour. Making knowingly benefitting from human trafficking or forced labour a predicate offense to money laundering, the report stresses, would close the gap between the billions generated from these crimes and the meagre compensation provided to its victims and survivors. In addition to securing compensation, Asset Recovery and Restitution, posits that changing the anti-money laundering regime would bring important shifts in the global economy, resulting in less exploitation and fewer labour abuses. The authors explain that once perpetrating individuals or companies understand their profits can be seized and confiscated, their risk calculus will change, and they will be more likely to prevent and avoid supporting these crimes.
