2022: What to Watch For in Financial Crime

The Centre for Financial Crime and Security Studies (CFCS) specialises in the intersection between finance and global security. Our pioneering analysis and actionable ideas aim to challenge the status quo and build resilience in the global response to illicit finance. Our work covers a range of state- and non-state-based security threats, which we examine through a financial lens. Since CFCS’s inception in 2014, we have been driving change through our partnership-based approach and the development of viable solutions.

Our work has helped to unveil the scale and complexities of international illicit finance, as well as to identify realistic policy responses across both the public and private sectors. We focus on putting our evidence-based research into practice through capacity-building and collaborative workshops. CFCS experts are regularly called upon to advise governments and international bodies, including the UN Security Council, the Financial Action Task Force, the UK and European Parliaments, and US Congress. Through our public engagements and events, we aim to highlight to wider audiences the pivotal role of finance in global security issues.
