Money laundering in selected emerging economies: is there a role for banks?

What is it about?

Understanding money laundering plays an important role in understanding economic growth (EG). Extensive research is conducted about that, previous research lacks answers about the relationship of anti-money laundering (AML) and EG by investigating the roles of the performance of Islamic banks, legal environment, financial crisis (FC), and bank size. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to cover that gap.

Why is it important?

To the best knowledge of the author, research on money laundering and Islamic banks in developing countries are not extensive, we have found ample room to discuss the said variables.

The research would be of importance to those seeking to understand the determinants of EG; it is also beneficial for those writing books about money laundering and Islamic banks in developing countries. The limitation of the study is the low number of Islamic banks that have complete data. Thus, this could be a future research contribution.
