This essay considers the ‘European-ness’ of the anti-money laundering framework for legal professionals working within countries of the European Union, asking if there is a particularly European nature to this framework (i.e. in comparison with the rest of the world) and whether it is experienced as such by those working in individual nation states. It argues that how anti-money laundering policies and processes are actually experienced by individual legal professionals is shaped by an interaction between global, regional, national and local factors. The ‘glocality’ of this experience creates both universal and particular characteristics through processes of adoption and adaptation. While there is value in considering the ‘European-ness’ of anti-money laundering frameworks, the importance of the national context in shaping experience at the local level must also be taken into account.
