Episode 8: Finding a Balance: Controls vs Inclusion

A robust anti-money laundering regime prevents crime and terror, yet it can also exclude large portions of society from financial services. Roughly 1.7 billion people across the globe lack access to finance, and this includes 1 million in the UK alone.

Host Isabella Chase is joined by Mariam Zahari, Policy Specialist at the Alliance for Financial Inclusion, to explore why the fostering of an inclusive financial integrity framework matters for both sustainable development and global security.

This week’s ‘In the News’ includes CFCS’s Wojciech Pawlus and RUSI Associate Fellow Malcolm Wright.
