The Organization of Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) and the Global Center, in consultation with the UN Counter-Terrorism Committee Executive Directorate (CTED), hosted a workshop in Bratislava looking at the risk of terrorist abuse of the nonprofit sector and to share good practices and foster cooperation in responding to that risk. Participants included national-level officials with a role in counterterrorist financing or charities regulation from across Eastern Europe and Central Asia, as well as officials from international and regional organizations active in this field. Representatives from the nonprofit sector from the region also gathered to provide their perspective on the vulnerability of the sector to terrorist abuse and to reflect on the responses of states and the sector to the challenges that arise.
The workshop builds on a multi-year initiative of the Global Center and CTED aimed at developing a common understanding of sound regulatory approaches to counter the risk of terrorist abuse of the nonprofit sector.
