The aim of this paper is to situate the engagement between Pakistan and the Financial Action Task Force in a chronologically-ordered fashion that depicts the major events between February 2019 and February 2020, with an equal effort to present the prelude of events since the FATF’s creation in 1989. This helps to address a gap in the policymaker effort to contextualize the long-horizon of international financial oversight and lack thereof as it pertains to Pakistan’s forced place in the FATF ‘grey list,’ as of 2020.

Keywords: Terrorism, Financial Action Task Force, APG, FATF, Money Laudering, Pakistan
