RUSI Europe - MASIF Project Manager

RUSI Europe welcomes applicants for the position of MASIF Project Manager from November 2021 to be based at its offices in Brussels, Belgium.


MASIF is the Monitoring and Support of the Global Illicit Flows Programme (GIFP) - an umbrella mechanism launched in 2019 for the European Union to assist partner countries in their efforts to tackle transnational organised crime. It also serves as a vehicle for the EU and its Member States’ law enforcement authorities to achieve wider global reach.

GIFP is the successor to the Cocaine Route Programme, which focused on bolstering transregional cooperation along cocaine smuggling routes to Europe. An important aim of the GIFP is to expand the focus and remit of international cooperation to cover illicit flows more broadly, to give greater insight, respond to changes in organised criminality and an evolution towards polycriminality and stimulate pro-activity in transnational law enforcement cooperation. The programme supports the fight against organised crime on trans-regional illicit routes, from narcotics to the movement of pre-cursor chemicals, illicit arms trafficking, wildlife crime and illicit financial flows.

MASIF works to increase synergies between all components of the GIFP and improve coordination with other initiatives in the fight against organised crime and drug trafficking. The project ensures close monitoring of GIFP projects; works to enhance coherence within the programme and with other external initiatives; provides expert analysis and recommendations; and works to increase the GIFP’s visibility. The project commenced in April 2021 and will be implemented over 36 months by RUSI Europe.
