Who are we?
ARINWA is an informal network for information exchange on asset recovery, confiscation and money laundering in West Africa. Each member state is represented by three focal points or national contact points from the administrations in charge of Justice, Security and Finance.
ARINWA, in an inter-ministerial approach, aims to enhance the effectiveness of its members in their efforts to deprive criminals of their illicit profits.

Nos domaines d’intervention
Like many parts of the world, West Africa is plagued by many forms of illicit trafficking, embezzlement and corruption. The results of efforts to mitigate these criminal phenomena are limited, particularly in terms of convictions and recovery of laundered assets.
This is due, among other things, to the growing sophistication of criminal networks and insufficient human and financial resources.
To address these challenges and to provide an effective investigative and regional cooperation response, the Inter-Agency Network on Asset Recovery for West Africa (ARIN-WA) was created.
