Le renouvellement des listes noires de la lutte contre l’argent sale

Abstract : The struggle against the financing of terrorism is one of the main aspects of the war on terror that was launched after September 11 events of 2001. This struggle has been patterned after the strategy used against money laundering that was launched in 1989. In this paper, I examine how both strategies against the financing of terrorism and against money laundering by organized crime have been brought together, focusing on how much the move to curb the financing of terrorism has transformed anti-money laundering practices in the private financial sector. I show that in order to comply with the needs of hindering the financing of terrorism, the private sector’s answers are now more sensitive to the individual case, more reactive and better coordinated to assist investigations by public police and magistrates. The regulatory constraints underpinning this new mission have led private financial actors to professionalize their practices in counterterrorism, but their true impact on terrorism still remains to be assessed.
