Finance, Law and Security: An Analysis of Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing, Sanctions and Corruption

Dr Martin S. Navias

Outline
This course analyses the relationship between global finance, law and security at both the national and international levels and within the public and private sectors. The focus of the course will be on the financial dimensions underpinning organised crime, terrorism and corruption and the legal and related mechanisms aimed at containing such threats.
Together with the focus on the legal underpinnings of anti-money laundering and counter terrorist financing, the course will also review the role of financial sanctions, military and dual-use export controls and counter-proliferation finance and how these policies impact the work of legal professionals responsible for ensuring institutional compliance with national and global policies. 
The module has a practical emphasis and will demonstrate how a compliance model can aid in ameliorating financial security threats. 

The course is geared towards legal and compliance practitioners within the private and public sectors.
