"An examination of policy implications on PEPs" by Alexandros Leslie Ioannis Sakalis

The purpose of this paper is to look at politically exposed persons (PEPs) as a tool of international governance from a political science perspective. The European Union Third Money Laundering Directive defines PEPs as ‘natural persons who are or have been entrusted with prominent public functions and immediate family members, or persons known to be close associates of such persons,’2 However, other organisations, such as the Wolfsberg Group, have different definitions of PEPs, extending them to ruling royal families. The lack of a global codified definition for PEPs is one of the reasons that creating global regulation towards tackling corruption amongst these individuals is so difficult.
