Abstract:Information governance (IG) can play a critical role in reducing the risks of stor-ing, using, sharing, and analysing relevant data/ information related to money laundering (ML) by ensuring effective compliance with national and international regulatory requirements. Most studies to date have only focused on technology and regulatory approaches to address the ML problem. Despite its importance, far too little attention has been paid to the potential role of information governance practices in the ML context. This study explores how various IG practices can aid Omani banks in increasing their capacity for governing ML-related data/ infor-mation in a way that enables them to mitigate the risks of ML. The study adopts a collective case study approach, with qualitative data being gathered from three primary sources, including semi-structured interviews, focus groups, and docu-ment reviews. Thematic analysis (TA) will be used to analyse and code the inter-view data. The participants in this study were recruited from six commercial banks in Oman using a purposive sampling method. The study is expected to contribute to theory, methodology and practice.
