The Anti-Money Laundering Journal of Africa


The Anti-Money Laundering Journal of Africa (AML Journal of Africa) is the official journal of the Association of Certified Compliance Professionals in Africa (ACCPA). The journal publishes scholarly and professional articles on the Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Anti-Terrorist Finance (ATF) sector in Africa on a quarterly basis. The journal does not seek to problematize Africa's AML regime but rather to show a balance of perspectives that evoke the complexities associated with the AML sector within the African continent. Many of the articles published in the journal are submitted by AML compliance professionals working on the ground in Africa.

The main goal of the AML Journal of Africa is to become a preeminent scholarly platform where African AML compliance professionals can take ownership of ongoing problems associated with money laundering, terrorist financing, corruption, online scams, and financial regulation within the African continent.

Aside from serving as an important forum, the AML Journal of Africa is unique in that it seeks to establish a space for AML compliance professionals in Africa to meaningfully take part in the ongoing discourse between scholarship and practice that underpins the AML challenges facing the continent. We believe that professionals on the ground in Africa remain a highly valuable yet under tapped resources in the effort to understand the root causes of Africa's AML challenges. Overall, the AML Journal of Africa aims to foster a truly continental dialogue that moves beyond the 'hegemonic' discourse by cultivating intellectual exchanges between equals.


The journal features a professional highlight column where the experiences and expertise of one compliance professional working in an African country is shared with other compliance professionals across the continent. Entries for the professional highlight column are submitted directly to the editor by compliance professionals for consideration. The journal also features a 'country focus' section where the challenges and opportunities of a selected African country's AML regime is discussed at depth.
