This blog by Poonam Joshi, the Director of the London Office for The Fund for Global Human Rights discusses how Mexico, in implementing the FATF’s money laundering directives to tackle the drugs trade, has triggered the repression of human rights groups and the closing down of civil society space. The resources non profits need for compliance are enormous and often unrealistic. The solution to the often untenable situation for  non profits lies, Joshi writes,  in raising more awareness around the issues on the ground , and in direct advocacy with the FATF, campaigning for a risk-based approach.
