We are a global civil society organisation fighting the theft of state assets


We provide civil society with skills, knowledge and network to advocate, inform, campaign and investigate cases where public and private officials are complicit in the illicit removal of public goods to private accounts and private ownership across country borders.

We also ensure that civil society can be an active voice in ensuring the return and monitoring the use of confiscated stolen assets and that civil society acts together globally against the systems that allow public assets to be stolen by those in power.


whoweareCiFAR’s mission is to act as the voice for civil society worldwide on stolen assets, to support civil society across the globe to be a strong and effective actor on stolen assets and to close the gap missing in global civil society asset recovery work.
