As terrorist groups and tactics evolve, government authorities and the private sector have focused on preventing financial and commercial systems from being leveraged and abused to fund terrorist activities. Leading experts came together to create Countering the Financing of Terrorism: Law and Policy after they realized there was a “gap in the literature” on this subject, says editor John M. Geiringer. The result is a comprehensive overview of the key legal tools and strategies used to combat this dynamic challenge. In this conversation, Geiringer discusses the extent of the terror financing problem; the role of financial institutions and banking lawyers in countering it; and the book’s insights into terror financing typologies.
Countering the Financing of Terrorism: Law and Policy is available from the American Bar Association in book and e-book form.
