Bangladesh's Counter-Terror Financing Measures – the Sheikh Hasina Regime

Scott Romaniuk, Md. Shariful Islam

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The history of terrorism in Bangladesh can be traced to emergence of Islamic factions in 1989. After addressing the terrorism landscape in Bangladesh, the chapter proceeds to engage with terrorist financing in the country. It examines the policies that Bangladesh has created and implemented at both the domestic and foreign-relations levels in its efforts to counter terror and terror financing. Thus, the government undertook its own securitisation program with government political and security lyricists building a regime to counter threats with attention on national security, though it would eventually encompass elements of political and social society that became easy prey of the government's expanded counter-terrorism laws, policies, and measures. Countering financing terror activities involves cooperation at the bilateral, regional, and global levels. Since terrorism and terrorist financing have become global issues, building and promoting regional and global partnership and cooperation, particularly the nurturing and promotion of intelligence sharing, will require deeper commitment by Bangladesh's present government and those to come.
