A RegNet alumnus, Dr Edwina Thompson has given a TED talk titled ‘What the war on terror has taught me’. Edwina was supervised at RegNet by Emeritus Professor Peter Grabosky and her thesis was published as a book,  Trust is the Coin of the Realm: Lessons from the Money Men in Afghanistan.  

About this TED talk:

Bin Laden set out to bankrupt the American people through fear. As the Western world now rushes to crack down on the money that equips jihadists in their ruthless mission, Edwina Thompson challenges decision-makers to be strategic in the fight, and shares with the rest of us how to see things clearly when fearful of the unknown.
