Abstract

Purpose

This paper aims to track Qatar’s progress in preventing abuse of charitable status or of its financial regulations to prevent terror finance.

Design/methodology/approach

Qatar’s progress towards meeting the demands of the Central Themes will thus be summarised and explored. This paper tracks its history in response to evolving Financial Action Task Force (FATF) standards, and considers how Qatar can take measures to enhance their reputation.

Findings

Qatar’s efforts were found to be sustained but these still fall short of emerging standards. This paper advocates for higher standards.

Originality/value

This original paper and novel approach is useful to policymakers and researchers of AML/CTF law. It is particularly timely in advance of the 2017 mutual evaluation of Qatar. It advances the findings of on another article written by the author.
