CNN Money cites GCSP research on ISIS financing

ISIS is dominating global news headlines but what do we actually know about their global enterprise, valued today at over 2 billion USD?

In November 2015 the GCSP, in partnership with the Institute for Economics & Peace, launched the 2015 Global Terrorism Index Report. The GTI has become the landmark document on mainstream news reporting of ISIS financing.

Contributing to the GTI, Dr Christina Schori-Liang, GCSP Senior Programme Advisor, in her chapter “ISIL Inc.: A Portrait of a Modern Terrorist Enterprise” highlights the mechanics and criminal trade practices which are driving the expansion of ISIS.
