Biography

Anton Moiseienko is a Lecturer at the ANU College of Law. His work focuses on transnational crime, economic crime and cybercrime, as well as legal and policy aspects of targeted sanctions.

Anton was previously a Research Fellow at the Centre for Financial Crime and Security Studies of the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI), a UK defence and security think-tank. While at RUSI, he led major multi-year research projects that explored the impact of technology on financial crime, as well as illicit trade risks in free-trade zones. He also published on a wide array of subjects including beneficial ownership transparency; corruption and fraud in the UK; and the financial footprint of cybercrime, cyber-enabled fraud and online IP piracy.

Anton is the author of Corruption and Targeted Sanctions, a monograph on the legal and policy implications of so-called ‘Magnitsky’ laws. He co-edited four books on transnational crime, including a 35-chapter-long Research Handbook on Transnational Crime.

He gave testimony to the International Trade Committee in the House of Commons and presented before multiple other UK agencies, including the Joint Money Laundering Intelligence Taskforce and the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Illicit Trade. He also testified before the Commission of Inquiry into Money Laundering in British Columbia (Canada).

Anton holds a PhD in law from Queen Mary University of London and LLM from the University of Cambridge.
