This article provides both an overview and a critique of international counter-terrorist financing measures since 11 September 2001 and their application to tracking terrorist finances generated and channelled via the Internet. Three separate jurisdictions will be studied and compared: the United States, the United Kingdom and the United Nations. In particular, the author examines the effectiveness and appropriateness of certain pieces of international guidance and national counter-terrorist financing legislation, as well as their application and interpretation by governments, courts and law enforcement authorities. By assessing the three main ways of generating terrorist finances via the Internet – direct solicitation of donations, using legitimate sources as a front and cybercrime – the author aims to highlight the strengths and weaknesses of each jurisdiction.
