Le recouvrement des avoirs illicites de la corruption internationale. "Évolutions récentes en droit français et recommandations à la lumière de la Convention des Nations Unies contre la corruption."

Abstract : The United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) has established the internationalrestitution of corruption-related assets as a fundamental principle. Although France is a State Party ofthe UNCAC, it has never returned any funds in the context of this convention unlike other Statessuch as Switzerland. However, French Law has been substantially strengthened in the areas of assetrecovery and the fight against international corruption over the last few decades. It is even largelycompliant with the UNCAC. Furthermore, France has always been attractive for wealthy foreignpublic officials whose fortune is sometimes questioned. It remains also a major economic player onthe international scale. In this context, the question arises as to why France has not so far returnedany corruption-related assets. This work presents the numerous legislative, judicial or institutionaldevelopments that have recently enhanced the French asset recovery and anti-corruption legalframework. When necessary, it suggests certain improvements. But it also proposes major reforms tomake asset recovery effective in France as well as the return of confiscated funds to the Statesvictims of corruption
