Discussions held in Malta in March 2024 reveal the challenges that public and private actors face in implementing sanctions and tackling illicit finance.


In mid-March 2024, the Centre for Finance and Security (CFS) at RUSI convened one-to-one meetings with key representatives of the public and private sectors in Malta. CFS also held a sanctions-focused roundtable discussion involving 25 local stakeholders, as well as an evening event consisting of a panel discussion and networking with over 100 attendees from the public and private sector, and the University of Malta. These events were held under the Chatham House rule and as part of RUSI’s ongoing study of sanctions implementation and wider responses to illicit finance (Euro SIFMANet). This report represents the findings and views of the CFS team that participated in the visit. The visit was funded by the UK’s Serious Organised Crime Network (SOCNet).
