Roundtable on Terrorist Financing Measures and the Non-Profit Sector, Berlin


Jointly hosted by Human Security Collective, the European Center for Not-for-Profit Law, the European Foundation Centre and Brot für die Welt, the roundtable discussed counterterrorism measures and their impact on the NPO sector as well as potential ways forward from an NPO perspective. The discussion was held in English under the Chatham House rules.
The session provided the opportunity for a practical exchange among not only German but also stakeholders from other European countries on how anti-terrorist financing regulation affects the work of public benefit organizations. How does the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), which has become the global standard setter on this matter, operate? Participants also discussed the sector’s experiences with European FATF evaluation processes and looked ahead at the opportunities for advocacy engagement to make sure that FATF implementation mechanisms do not unnecessarily limit the space for civil society.
