Financing Terrorism with Juan Zarate

February 13, 2015
New Building, L2.84

​Juan Zarate’s most recent book is the authoritative Treasury’s War: The Unleashing of a New Era of Financial Warfare. His study has reimagined sanctions and other forms of financial pressures to exert on terrorist groups and thus creatively expanded this area of countering violent extremism.

Zarate presently serves as a senior advisor at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) as well as the senior national security analyst for CBS News, and national security and financial integrity consultant. He served as a deputy assistant to the president and deputy national security advisor for combating terrorism from 2005 – 2009 during the George Bush Administration. He was responsible for implementing the U.S. government’s counter-terrorism policy and strategy related to transnational security threats. He was the first assistant secretary of the treasury for terrorist financing and financial crimes and played a large role in the global hunt pertaining to Saddam Hussein’s assets. Zarate is also a former federal prosecutor and served on several prosecution teams prior to 9/11, including the investigation into the USS Cole attack. He has had a variety of news articles published in the New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, Washington Quarterly, including but not limited to his own weekly national security program on entitled Flash Points. Zarate graduated magna cum laude from Harvard University; cum laude graduate status from Harvard Law School; and is presently a member of the California Bar.
