The CIS ATC’s delegation led by the Center’s Deputy Head Marat Abdyraev took part in the 27th Plenary meeting of the Eurasian Group on Combating Money Laundering and Financing of Terrorism (EAG).
Within the frameworks of the event the CIS ATC presented its research work on Countering Financing of Recruitment for Terrorist Purpose, which had been conducted in co-operation with the CIS competent authorities.
The attending experts praised high level of the presented materials and came to a conclusion that the research work could serve a ground for further development of indicators of a recruiter profile.

The CIS ATC and EAG signed a Memorandum of Understanding in 2014. Under this document both organizations co-operate in the following directions:
- consulting on organizational-legal issues;
- exchanging best practices in conducting organizational-practical measures;
- inviting each other in the observer capacity to attend scientific-practical conferences;
- organizing information exchange of scientific, legal and analytical materials on topical issues of anti-terrorism.
Basing on the decision of the EAG 21st Plenary meeting as of November 2014, the CIS Anti-Terrorism Centre has been granted an observer status in the organization.
