Coping Strategies for Anti-Terrorism Measures

October 2021


Many humanitarian organizations come into contact with counterterrorism measures, country-specific sanctions, and related legal requirements. In this course, you will learn various approaches to help prevent negative impacts from counterterrorism measures on humanitarian assistance. These include formulating anti-diversion policies and process descriptions such as due diligence reports, codes of conduct, and human resources policies. At the same time, you will also explore the possibilities of advocacy work that advocates for exemptions from sanctions regimes, for example at the UN Security Council level or in the context of negotiation processes with banks.

This course is expected to take place in October 2021 and will include regular breaks. The training follows on from the September 2021 course "Counterterrorism Measures, Sanctions and Humanitarian Work". You will receive further information and registration details in due time via our newsletter.
