NEW REPORT ON THE UNINTENDED IMPACT OF SANCTIONS ON NGOs

The thinktank Demos has published a report (link here) on the unintended consequences of sanctions / asset-freezing measures on the NGO sector.

The report, entitled ‘Uncharitable Behaviour’, is written by Tom Keatinge.  He describes in detail the role of banks in enforcing sanctions relating in particular to terrorism, Iran, Syria, Russia, and Libya, the “far-reaching and unintended consequences” of these measures on NGOs, and makes a number of recommendations for improvement.
