ISIS Financing Primer Video

This is the first entry for the Financial Crimes blog for this semester, it explores the origins of the Islamic State and analyzes their financing methods.

You can access the video right here —>

For those interested in ISIS keep checking back here because I will be posting several more entries about the militants. Namely I will explore Qatari and Saudi involvement in ISIS’ financing, money laundering concerns and an op-ed in which I discuss their financial vulnerabilities.

If you have any entries you would like submitted for the blog please let me know. I would be happy to share your work and insight with our readers. I can be reached at
