On 2 April, RUSI published an Occasional Paper which explores how corruption can enable terrorism and facilitate terrorist financing, and the manner in which corruption – for example, corrupt border security guards or the illegal exploitation of natural resources – can facilitate both terrorism and terrorist financing.  This paper sets out to remedy this dearth by looking at terrorism and terrorist financing, respectively., and divides its analysis across 2 primary areas: considering the ways in which corruption can enable terrorism, and how corruption can also facilitate terrorist financing. In the former, the connection between terrorism and corruption is particularly evident in 2 fields: border corruption and defence sector corruption.
