In recognition of our niche research in the area of financial criminology, the Accounting Research Institute (ARI) has been invited by the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU), Malaysia to co-organize the International Conference on Financial Crime and Terrorism Financing 2011 (IFCTF 2011). With the theme "Raising the Bar in Compliance and Enforcement", the conference will be held on 19-20 September at the JW Marriott Hotel in Kuala Lumpur. This is the 3rd edition of the IFCTF Conference following the hugely successful event in 2010 and 2009. The two main organizers of the conference are the Institut Bank-Bank Malaysia (IBBM)and the Compliance Officers Networking Group (CONG). Meanwhile, the other co-organizers include the Asian Institute of Finance (AIF), Islamic Banking and Finance Institute Malaysia (IBFIM), the Malaysian Insurance Institute (MII), Security Industry Development Corporation (SIDC). The event is supported by the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU). ARI from Universiti Teknologi MARA is deeply honored for FIU's invitation to co-organise the event. Prof Dr Normah Omar from ARI will be delivering a paper on "Non-Profit Organisations (NPOs) as a Medium for ML/TF – Red Flags for Identification" at the conference.
