Ehrenfeld is the director of the New York-based Center for the Study of Corruption and the Rule of Law. As the foremost authority on Narco-Terrorism (she coined the phrase and was the first to write about the phenomenon) and its corrupting effects on democracies and societies everywhere, her advice is sought after by numerous international and national agencies. Her articles appear regularly in the Wall Street Journal and National Review. In addition, she frequently appears on television news programs to discuss terrorism, corruption, and the Middle East (The O'Reilly Factor, Fox News, CNN, and Nightline).
