The project engages with authorities and private entities in order 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.
The Consortium’s research agenda focuses on the most pressing issues facing Europe when it comes to CTF:
- Lone-actor and small-cell terrorist financing
- The impact of new payment and social media technologies on terrorist financing and CTF
- The crime–terror nexus
- Smuggling of small arms and light weapons as a TF method
- The ethical and political considerations of public–private partnerships
- CTF capacities of EU candidate countries
