Please note: This page refers to an event that has already taken place.

Time: Thursday, 23 September 2010 12:00-13:00
Place: PRIO, Hausmannsgate 7, Oslo

Jonas Rusten Wang presents his comparative study on the regulatory approaches of five remittance-sending countries, namely the United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden and Norway. The study assesses the level of control the national authorities have, as well as how efficient the market functions for the consumers. In doing that, it tries to answer how national authorities can strike a balance between combating the abuse of informal systems and safeguarding the legitimate uses of such systems.


Tea, coffee and fruit will be served.
