What is the source of the money stolen or laundered by terrorists used to run their organizations and militant operations? Since they are often moving, how do these terrorists keep their money safe and available?If you said banks, you are correct.
Laws and financial regulations to combat money laundering and terrorist financing have proliferated around the world.
This means that the financial sector of every major country is not only engaged with banking regulators but within intelligence agencies, and foreign policies of countries in which they operate. How does it all work and why haven't governments been successful in stopping money from going to criminals and terrorists?
Ian Oxnevad has spent almost a decade exploring the financing of global terrorism. His book, Making a Killing: States, Banks, and Terrorist Financing, McGill-Queens University Press will be available soon.
Dr. Oxnevad has a Ph.D. in Political Science/International Relations from the University of California, Riverside, and an M.A. in National Security Studies, Dual Emphasis: Middle East Security and Terrorism from California State University, San Bernardino. He is teaching at UC Irvine in the 2020-21 academic year.
