Dutch National Risk Assessment on Terrorist Financing 2019

Dutch National Risk Assessment on Terrorist Financing 2019


Dutch policy to prevent and combat terrorist financing is based on the recommendations of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) and European Union (EU) directives and regulations. Article 7 of this directive obliges EU Member States to implement a risk-based policy against money laundering and terrorist financing and to establish a National Risk Assessment (NRA). In 2017 the Research and Documentation Centre (WODC) carried out the first NRA on terrorist financing and on money laundering for the European part of the Netherlands. A year later, the WODC also conducted an NRA on both topics for the Caribbean Netherlands: the islands Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba (see links at: More information). A second NRA for the European Netherlands on terrorist financing has been carried out by the WODC, with the aim of identifying the greatest risks in the field of terrorist financing. These are terrorist financing risks with the greatest residual potential impact. To this end, the terrorist financing threats with the greatest potential impact have been identified, an estimate has been made of the impact these threats can have and the ‘resilience’ of the policy instruments aimed at preventing and combating terrorist financing has been determined.
