The financing of the ‘Islamic State’ in Iraq and Syria (ISIS)

11-09-2017

Threatening both its caliphate project and its sources of funding, the series of military setbacks that the so-called Islamic State group (IS) as suffered for several months have called into question the group’s very existence. That is not to say that its offensive capabilities will be neutered – the organisation will remain able to employ ’low-cost‘ terrorist attacks to target civilians throughout the Middle East, Africa, Europe, America or Asia.

Threatening both its caliphate project and its sources of funding, the series of military setbacks that the so-called Islamic State group (IS) as suffered for several months have called into question the group’s very existence. That is not to say that its offensive capabilities will be neutered – the organisation will remain able to employ ’low-cost‘ terrorist attacks to target civilians throughout the Middle East, Africa, Europe, America or Asia. In mobilising Member States to fight against terrorism, the European Parliament’s role is crucial. Individually, Member States have an important part to play in effectively implementing common decisions. Their varying levels of engagement, as well as the progress they have made in confronting the financing of terrorism and especially IS, should be considered. An annual reporting framework should be put into place to better evaluate the measures taken by both Member States and the Commission in this area.

Kazakhstan: Economic situation

Kazakhstan, Central Asia's largest economy, is an upper-middle-income country aiming to join the world's 30 most developed countries by 2050. Russia's economic slowdown, a weakened domestic demand after the devaluation of the national currency, the tenge, and adverse developments in the terms of trade, have pushed economic growth down to 4.3% in 2014 from 6% in 2013, and will continue to do so in 2015.

On a more optimistic note, Kazakhstan's newly acquired WTO membership will further strengthen its integration in global trade and economy.
