Terror Finance Briefing Book

About the Terror Finance Briefing Book

The Terror Finance Briefing Book is a product of FDD’s Center on Sanctions and Illicit Finance (CSIF) created to help policymakers better understand how terrorist groups fund their operations so that they may be targeted more effectively. This publication compiles financial assessments of select jihadist organizations in the Middle East and Africa. Each report identifies the key financial strengths and vulnerabilities of each group, reviews U.S. and international countermeasures, highlights possible wildcard scenarios which could impact future funding, and recommends the main areas where policymakers and counter-illicit finance strategists should focus their action.

For each report, the first four pages serve as a visually-engaging briefing aid, providing a concise overview of the respective organization’s finances. For those interested in a deeper dive into funding activity, a Financial Details section gives a more thorough look at the terrorist group’s funding model and developments over time, drawing on the most authoritative open sources.

Each report in the Briefing Book is published with a listing of affiliated designees for each group, linked on the appendices page.
