Much of the discussion of the terrorist threat focuses on the causes of terrorism and how to combat it.
 
On September 25th we’ll examine the funding mechanisms of terrorism with international expert Dr. Rachel Ehrenfeld.
 
Dr. Rachel Ehrenfeld is Founder and President of the New York-based American Center for Democracy, and the Economic Warfare Institute. Her work encompasses economic warfare, including free speech, disinformation, and lawfare, as well as cyber security, Weapons of Mass Effect (WME), corruption, terrorist financing, the links between global networks of criminal and terrorist groups, the Political Islam movement, and jihadist groups.
 
Dr. Ehrenfeld focuses on recognizing patterns of seemingly unrelated foreign and domestic events as they link to threaten the U.S. political, social, economic and financial systems and other issues related to its national security.
 
She has published three books and is working on the fourth, has published many academic and policy papers and more than one thousand articles.
 
She has lectured in and organised international conferences/workshops and specialised briefings and wargaming in the U.S. and elsewhere. She has testified on terrorist financing before Congressional Committees, the Canadian and European Parliaments, provided evidence to the British Parliament and consulted the governments of Bulgaria and Indonesia on good governance.
 
She has also advised U.S. government agencies, including the Department of Defense, Justice, State, Treasury and Homeland Security, and provided expert testimony in U.S. courts.
 
On her own, Dr. Ehrenfeld took on a Saudi billionaire and terrorist financier who sued her for libel in London, England. She countersued him in New York and initiated and successfully lobbied for the Libel Terrorism Protection Act (“Rachel’s Law”) in New York State in 2008, and for similar laws since passed in other states in the U.S. A federal version of Rachel’s Law, the SPEECH Act, passed unanimously by Congress and signed into law by President Obama in 2010. These laws protect American writers and publishers from the enforcement of foreign libel judgments in the U.S.
 
DR. Ehrenfeld was a visiting scholar at Columbia University Institute of War and Peace Studies; a research scholar at the New York University School of Law; a fellow at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies and Jesus College at Cambridge University. She has a Ph.D. in Criminology from the Hebrew University School of Law. Dr. Ehrenfeld is the recipient of several awards, including the “Sappho Award” from the Free Press Society (2011).
 
Dr. Ehrenfeld’s books include:
 
FUNDING EVIL: HOW TERRORISM IS FINANCED – AND HOW TO STOP IT (2003, 2005,2011)
 
EVIL MONEY (HarperCollins, 1992,1994),
 
NARCOTERRORISM (Basic Books, 1990, 1992).
