EU Measures to Combat Terrorist Financing

  • Oldrich Bures


This chapter offers a critical assessment of the post-9/11 efforts of the European Union (EU) in the fight against terrorist finances. Using the EU’s own goals from its action plans and counterterrorism strategies as the baseline criteria, it examines how successful has the EU been in implementing the relevant aspects of various United Nations Security Council counterterrorism resolutions, the special recommendations of Financial Action Task Force and its own measures spanning across all of its three pre-Lisbon pillars.
