    Pulkit Tripathi asked: Is there any course on counter terrorism finance in India?

    Prasad P. Rane replies: Terrorism finance is one of the financial crimes, but the wider domain includes, among others, money laundering, sanctions (evasion and circumvention), corporate frauds, narcotics trade, human trafficking and illegal arms trade. In India, there are no formal degree courses, neither on counter terrorism finance in particular nor related to any of the financial crimes. The absence of degree courses in financial crimes is due to sheer dynamism of the domain.

    Australia has remained insulated from mega terrorist attacks, but post-September 11 its involvement in the war on terror in Afghanistan, Iraq and against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has brought terrorism into its backyard. In the wake of these emerging threats, particularly home-grown terrorism (HGT), successive governments have introduced changes in the counter-terrorism (CT) laws, and expanded the Criminal Code Act 1995 (Commonwealth-Cth) at the recommendations of the Council of Australian Governments (COAG).

    Operation Radd-ul-Fasaad: Timely, but Unlikely to Succeed
