CGCC hosted a panel discussion to consider the findings and recommendations presented in the joint UN-CGCC report, To Protect and Prevent: Outcomes of a Global Dialogue to Counter Terrorist Abuse of the Nonprofit Sector. The panel included: Sarah Runge, Acting Director, Office of Strategic Policy, Terrorist Financing and Financial Crimes, United States Department of the Treasury; Peter Romaniuk, Senior Fellow, CGCC; Kay Guinane, Program Manager, Charity and Security Network; Elizabeth Joyce, Chief of Section, UN Counter-Terrorism Committee Executive Directorate; and moderated by Alistair Millar, Executive Director, CGCC.
The report summarizes the outcomes of a multiyear project led by the UN and CGCC aimed at developing a common understanding of sound practices to counter the risk of terrorist abuse of nonprofit organizations (NPOs). That project included two global-level meetings and five regional-level expert meetings, in which more than 50 states and 80 nonprofit organizations participated, in addition to representatives of relevant UN and multilateral agencies, officials from the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) and FATF-style regional bodies, and the financial sector.
