Tivat, Montenegro, 26-27 Feb: Human Security Collective (HSC) took part in a two-day regional workshop for the jurisdictions of the Western Balkans and Turkey, organized by the Council of Europe (CoE), to discuss the performing of risk assessments for the sector. HSC highlighted the disjunct between theory and practice, as well as the unintended consequences of anti-money-laundering and countering the financing of terrorism (AML/CFT) rules and regulations on the operational environment of civil society. Risk assessment methodologies for the NPO sector were discussed, as were post-risk assessment mitigation measures. The jurisdictions present (mostly government representatives) also made rich contextual interventions.
