The World Financial Review, March/April 2020 | Lester M. Salamon. Published in the March/April issue of The World Financial Review, this article by Center Director Dr. Lester Salamon notes that past experience with the return of stolen assets to governments has too often led to disappointing results and urges consideration instead of applying the PtP concept, which calls for the placement of such assets into carefully structured, private charitable foundations as exemplified in the BOTA Foundation in Kazakhstan and many other foundations around the world.
