6 Anti-Money Laundering and Combatting the Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT)
7 Research Questions Specifically, two dimensions will be addressed: i) how AML is being mobilized, practiced, and evaluated within the context of Georgia; ii) how it is being constructed as a model from those networks of transnational actors
8 Governmentality Dean, M Governmentality: power and rule in modern society. Los Angeles: Sage Publications. How the regime has a technical or technological dimension and analyses the characteristic techniques, instrumentalities and mechanisms through which such practices operate, by which they attempt to realize their goals, and through which they have a range of effects (Dean 1999: 22).
9 EU Integration: Harmonization Barry, A Political Machines: Governing a Technological Society. London and New York: Athlone Press. The process of standardization is intended as a process of deterritorialisation in which the mobility of capital or labor is unimpeded and across which uniform forms of social and environmental regulation are possible. But it is also a process which simultaneously forms new zones of control and regulation and creates new sites, object and forms of political conflict (84).
