An Occasional Paper from RUSI on 9 March surveys the counterterrorist financing landscape and seeks to provide an approach through which a more appropriate and relevant response to terrorist financing can be developed.  It provides an assessment of the different forms of terrorist actor and proposes ways in which a more informed and dynamic response to terrorist financing could be developed, with the following principles in mind –

  • Clarify the objectives of CTF measures;
  • Develop evidence-based CTF strategies;
  • Make greater use of financial intelligence;
  • Promote collaboration – between counterterrorism and law enforcement officials; public and private sectors; and countries and within regions; and
  • Engage more actively with risks posed by new technologies.

If you’d like to help me buy that (badly needed) new laptop or, even better, a new desktop to replace the one now 5,000 miles away –
