The event comprises two segments: an expert segment on 3-4 September and a political segment in the morning of 5 September. The political segment will focus on how the outcomes and recommendations of expert discussions can be brought to the attention of decision makers, and further advanced in order to strengthen national and international asset recovery efforts.
