Illicit Economies, Violence and Development Series: Terrorism and Illicit Finance
Join us for the final in a series of six seminars jointly run by the Centre for the Study of Illicit Economies, Violence and Development (CIVAD) at SOAS and RUSI. The series brings together academics, students, policymakers and practitioners with an interest and engagement in questions around illicit economies, violence and development.
In 2019, the UN Security Council passed Resolution 2482, expressing ‘concern that terrorists can benefit from organized crime … as a source of financing or logistical support’. The resolution stressed the urgent need for research on the interlinkages that may exist between terrorism, organised crime and illicit finance. This reflected the growing international focus on the crime-terror nexus. This session will explore this nexus in practice, including top-down responses alongside local efforts that harness local knowledge, local researchers and civil society.
The panel will include:
- Dr Hans-Jakob Schindler, Senior Director, Counter Extremism Project
- Joana de Deus Pereira, Senior Research Fellow, RUSI Europe
- Dr Keith Ditcham, Acting Director, Organised Crime and Policing, RUSI
The event will be chaired by Emily Winterbotham, Director Terrorism and Conflict, RUSI.
