Abstract

There has been a significant shift in the way the terrorist organizations obtain funding, with increasing links to organized crime being seen. In addition to normal crimes, less dangerous and more profitable crimes such as trafficking (drugs and human), counterfeiting (consumer goods), and smuggling (cigarettes) have become more commonplace. Therefore, the fight against terrorism will mean greater emphasis on stopping these economic crimes, with perhaps changes in laws necessary, particularly with regards to sentencing.
