The Global Center is continuing its partnership with financial intelligence units in the Greater Horn of Africa to combat terrorism financing and illicit financial flows, including Djibouti, Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda. With support from the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Counterterrorism and the Kingdom of the Netherlands, the Global Center is providing strategic support and technical assistance to bolster anti-money laundering and countering the financing of terrorism (AML/CFT) capacities among private sector reporting entities, regulatory and supervisory bodies, and financial crime investigators and prosecutors.
The program includes country-specific workstreams that focus on building strong institutions equipped with the necessary tools and skills for effective identification, investigation, and prosecution of terrorism financing and illicit finance. The program builds upon national and context-specific training to facilitate information sharing and increased cooperation at the regional level, including convening regional investigators, judges, and competent authorities to advance responses to transnational crimes.
Through this work, the project supports the adoption of a risk-based approach to CFT that contributes to broader economic justice and financial inclusion aims and helps mitigate the enabling conditions for violent extremist recruitment.
