We examine the evolving global counterterrorist financing landscape and seek to develop appropriate and relevant responses to the threat of terrorist financing.

RUSI’s work focuses on rethinking approaches to countering terrorist financing, including assessing the role of new technologies, the threat of lone-actor and small-cell terror finance and the crime/terror nexus. We also study capacity-building for both the public and private sectors.

We have a special focus on Europe through Project CRAAFT, an academic research and community-building initiative designed to build stronger, more coordinated counterterrorist financing capacity across the EU and in its neighbourhood. The project engages with authorities and private entities to promote cross-border connectivity and targeted research. Funded by the European Union’s Internal Security Fund – Police, the project is being implemented by a Consortium led by RUSI Europe, along with the University of Amsterdam, Bratislava-based think tank GLOBSEC and the International Centre for Counter-Terrorism (ICCT), based in The Hague.
