RUSI

The Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) is the world’s oldest and the UK’s leading defence and security think tank. Its mission is to inform, influence and enhance public debate on a safer and more stable world. RUSI is a research-led institute, producing independent, practical and innovative analysis to address today’s complex challenges.

Since its foundation in 1831, RUSI has relied on its members to support its activities. Together with revenue from research, publications and conferences, RUSI has sustained its political independence for 188 years.

In recent years, RUSI’s geographical and thematic scope has expanded to reflect the challenges of the twenty-first century – from the changing character of war, to online radicalisation, to the rise of China.

  • Centre for Financial Crime and Security Studies
