This event aims at exploring the different opportunities and challenges that a career in fighting illicit finance in civil society can offer.

Senior professionals from different institutions will be on the panel to discuss their own experiences and provide useful insights for young professionals at the beginning of their careers. Following a moderated discussion with the panellists, attendees have the opportunity to talk with the panellists as well as network with each other.

This is the third event in a series organised by the Centre for Financial Crime and Security Studies at RUSI, working in partnership with organisations from the public and private sector.



  • Kathryn Westmore, Senior Research Fellow at CFCS at RUSI
  • Dr Sue Hawley, Director at Spotlight on Corruption

About the forum

The Future Leaders in Illicit Finance Forum has members from different backgrounds, from civil servants in HMG to members of the private sector, to civil society and academics, all working in the anti-financial crime/illicit finance sphere.

The main purpose of the forum is to generate discussion and promote new views on how to tackle illicit finance and to help young professionals increase their skillset and build networks so that they can become the next generation of dirty money fighters.
