Lecture and Q/A Session: 4:00pm - 5:30pm (followed by a drinks reception)
Venue: Social Sciences Building, Room S 0.21

Chaired by: Dr Renske Doorenspleet (PAIS)

Amjad Rihan, whistleblower on the global gold trade and the Founder of Global Business & Financial Integrity (GBFI), which campaigns for policy reform in combatting financial crime, will speak on the role of the gold trade in fuelling conflict and human rights atrocities.

How does the gold trade facilitate terrorist financing, illegal arms trading and the laundering of billions of dollars of criminal money? What is the role of international organizations and states - both in the global South and North, extractive industries and corporate firms? What is the impact of the gold trade on conflict, war, corruption and international development? The Annual Lecture of Warwick’s GRP’s International Development Programme will focus on these questions.
