Many humanitarian organizations have come into contact with counter-terrorism measures, country-specific sanctions and related legal provisions. This workshop provides an overview of current counterterrorism developments and a starting point for reflecting on their implications for humanitarian work. In particular, it will highlight the potential tensions that may arise for humanitarian actors from counterterrorism legal frameworks and policies, as well as human rights and international humanitarian law. You will also learn where to find information on country-specific sanctions and which regulations are applicable to you.
This course will take place as an online workshop in September 2021 and includes regular breaks. A second seminar on dealing with counter-terrorism measures with a focus on internal risk management will take place in autumn 2021. Further details and information on the registration process for both courses will follow in due time via our newsletter.
