This course is similar to a mini-seminar in that students will have a big project deliverable at the end, which must be related to either terrorism financing, WMD proliferation financing (by state or non-state actors), or sanctions evasion/enforcement. The final deliverable can take the form of a video (including narrated slide deck saved in a video format), or live presentation and poster session. In addition to deepening knowledge about a specific case or topic, students will learn about other students’ cases and a lot of time will be spent on honing narration and presentation skills. The best projects will be showcased at the Monterey Threat Financing Forum in March 2019.

The course will be delivered in a hybrid format via Canvas and Zoom (for smaller group meetings with professor) in order to accommodate students who will not be in Monterey for most of Winterim. However, students must be back on campus for face-to-face sessions beginning Tuesday, January 22nd, 2019.
