Study of the Impact of Donor Counter-Terrorism Measures on Principled Humanitarian Action

Study of the Impact of Donor Counter-Terrorism Measures on Principled Humanitarian Action

by Kate Mackintosh and Patrick Duplat, July 2013

Despite attention at the global level to counter-terrorism and human rights issues, the impact of counter-terrorism measures on humanitarian action has not been studied in detail. In early 2011, to further advance the research and analysis of these issues, including from a more global perspective, the Inter-Agency Standing Committee's (IASC) Task Force on Humanitarian Space and Civil-Military Relations asked the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) and the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Assistance (OCHA) to commission an independent comprehensive study on the impact of counter-terrorism measures on principled humanitarian action. The study seeks to examine the impact of donors' counter-terrorism measures on principled humanitarian action.
