    Abstract

    In this chapter, we examine the approaches taken within Australian jurisdictions
    towards the proceeds of crime in the past 25 years, but with a particular focus
    on changes during the past decade. Features of the laws governing proceeds of
    crime and asset recovery will be examined to the extent that they set out key
    measures being adopted and implemented by law-enforcement and prosecution
    authorities in Australia. In addition, we shall consider some of the organizational
    and practical changes these agencies have undergone with the goal of taking away
    the illicit profits from organized crime.
