In this chapter, watchlists are discussed. The formidable FATF grey list and black list are explored alongside other less critical watchlists. But are these watchlists based on true AML/CFT performance or are they a sharp political stick in which only some countries will feel the pain? Do they have horrible consequences which are seemingly ignored? Watchlist absenteeism is discussed alongside the idea that the Western-based ideology and rules-based system are clearly not transposable onto every country – hence why some countries will always teeter on the edge of such watchlists no matter how good they are.
