CSO activists

In Money Trail, Oxfam Novib together with others, offers two training courses, one in Asia (Bali, December 2018) and one in Africa (Nairobi, September 2019) on ‘Tax research and illicit finance’.

This training aims to build the research and advocacy capacity of CSO activists on tax and illicit financial flows. It intends to do this in an interactive way tailored towards the needs of participants, so that the training feeds into everyone’s daily work as much as possible. At the end of the training, CSOs increased knowledge and capacity to understand, research, monitor and analyze illicit finance and develop campaign ‘spikes’ with relevant policy asks and compellingly explain the outcomes of publications from investigative journalists to a much larger audience.

The first training was organized on Wednesday 12 – Saturday 15 December 2018 in Bali, Indonesia, together with The Prakarsa, SOMO and Oxfam in Indonesia.
