On the obstructions faced by civil society organizations as a consequence of this context

Nonprofit organizations (NPOs) around the world have faced operational and legal restrictions due to counter-terrorism regulations. For example, banks have blocked or closed accounts of organizations working in conflict zones; laws have been enacted to restrict foreign funding or to introduce burdensome governance and audit requirements; human rights defenders have been prosecuted; and the right to protest has been limited. This has had a negative effect on NPOs’ abilities to implement activities and protect the needs of beneficiaries, especially in crisis or conflict areas.
