Please join us for a closed-door, Chatham House rules roundtable discussion of AML and proliferation finance issues that arise in Asia. The Committees will be hosting Jonathan Brewer, Sue Eckert, and Elizabeth Rosenberg, renowned researchers from the Center for New American Security (CNAS), who are visiting Asia as part of a MacArthur Foundation funded research project entitled “New Strategies for Combating Proliferation Financing.” The project seeks to understand sanctions strategies, proliferation finance typologies and international policy and regulatory structures and challenges to combat proliferation finance.

The project will ultimately produce reports and recommendations to strengthen an ongoing multi-stakeholder dialogue, which CNAS hopes will play a significant role in shaping and advancing the debate on financial strategies to strengthen non-proliferation regulatory regimes. CNAS further hopes that this effort can promote international cooperation on sanctions to achieve foreign policy aims and improve coordination with the financial and banking sectors to enforce global non-proliferation norms.

The roundtable is being convened to provide CNAS with insight into our experience in Asia – what sanctions and proliferation risks and challenges arise, including both in business conduct and regulatory obligations, and how those risks and challenges are navigated.

Please join us to learn more about this research project and share your experiences to bring important insights to the dialogue.
