EXTREME RIGHT-WING TERRORISM FINANCING

The Egmont Group of FIU has published a public version of its July 2021 report which came in the wake of UN research showing that there has been a 320% rise in attacks conducted by individuals affiliated with extreme right-wing (ERW) movements and ideologies the previous 5 years.  It is said that FIU indicate a need for more background information and knowledge on the phenomena of ERW extremism and terrorism to be able to identify relevant money flows.  However, analysis found that domestic authorities are taking this threat into account and that solutions are found for combating ERW terrorism financing, but that some room for improvement exists.  The report includes case examples, and identifies key lessons and best practices highlighted.  Among the things it recommends is to widen the scope of the national risk assessment (NRA) and, if needed, explicitly analyse the threat of ERW terrorism financing.
