The Financial War on Terror

Dr. Ibrahim Warde, Fletcher School, Tufts University, will join us to discuss the US government’s efforts to tackle terrorist finances.  In the wake of 9-11, the US
government initiated a series of measures designed to strike a blow at
the heart of the international terrorist finance network.  Warde argues
that although many of these measures were necessary, and indeed long
overdue, they have had limited impact on terrorism and resulted in
considerable collateral damage.  They are based on a fundamental
misconception of how terrorist organizations work.  Warde will discuss
how operations such as the 9/11 attacks were actually financed. How do
terrorist financial networks function? What countermeasures have we put
in place and how effective are they?
