IHL and the humanitarian impact of counterterrorism measures and sanctions

Fragmento original: Summary

In recent decades international and domestic counterterrorism (CT) measures have addressed ever broader forms of support to terrorist acts and groups designated as terrorist. When these measures apply in armed conflict there is a real risk that they can impede the operations of humanitarian organizations. Country-specific sanctions can raise similar problems.

Challenges arise as a direct result of the restrictions themselves, their incorporation in funding agreements and their cascading effects, as commercial actors that provide services necessary for humanitarian operations – such as banks, insurers and commodity providers – restrict the services they are willing to provide.
