CTF Online Symposium No. 4: Fraud-Enabled Terrorism Financing: A Neglected Dossier

28 October 2020, 14:00
A webinar with Professor Nicholas Ryder

Terrorism can be financed through funds collected both unlawfully and lawfully. In recent years, fraud has become a key catalyst fuelling many terrorism financing methods. 

In this webinar, Professor Nicholas Ryder presents his research briefing that has identified a terrorism financing dossier, a black book of how terrorists and their supporters use fraud to finance terrorism. This includes, among others, immigration and identify theft, tax fraud, personal load fraud, bank and insurance fraud, and non-profit sector fraud. Professor Ryder will discuss how terrorism financiers have been able to accrue funding by different types of fraud and how can a better understanding of the fraud dossier increase the state's ability to counter this kind of terrorism financing. 

Nicholas Ryder is a Professor of Financial Crime at the University of the West of England, Bristol. 

This event will took place on 28 October 2020, 1400 London time / 1500 Brussels time.
