The IFFC is an independent not-for-profit foundation and the hub of a knowledge-intensive public-private network in the field of financial-economic crime.
The IFFC is based in The Hague, The Netherlands: the international city of peace, justice and security, which symbolizes the connection between technology, conflict management and law. As the Dutch platform for knowledge and expertise on financial-economic crime, the IFFC seeks to interact with similar organisations worldwide.
To stimulate public-private cooperation in the combat against FEC, in the interest of social integrity and reducing the financial impact to society.
Financial-economic crime is a social problem. The IFFC believes that government, the business community and knowledge institutions have a shared responsibility to prevent and combat FEC in order to have a sustainable and ethical society. Our vision is to connect parties, to facilitate and stimulate cooperation between these parties, to spot trends in financial-economic crime in an early stage, and to bring financial-economic crime issues to the agenda of public and private institutions.
The work of IFFC is based on the following values:
