Launch of the Feb. 2022 Issue of the International Review of the Red Cross: “Counterterrorism, Sanctions and War”

March 3, 2022 • 9:00 – 10:00 am EST

On 3 March 2022, the Humanitarian Agenda at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) will host the Washington DC launch of the February 2022 issue of the International Review of the Red Cross, "Counterterrorism, Sanctions and War."

Combatting terrorism remains a priority for the international community, yet there is a growing debate over the effectiveness and second order implications of the financial and regulatory tools used to reduce terrorist financing. A growing body of scholarship studying these impacts demonstrates that sanctions and other efforts to combat and deter terrorism often hinder the effective delivery of humanitarian assistance and are in tension with international humanitarian law and core humanitarian principles. Reconciling the tension between counterterrorism measures, including sanctions, and the ability to deliver critical humanitarian aid is an urgent priority.

The event will feature  contributing authors Emanuela-Chiara Gillard (University of Oxford), Justine Walker (ACAMS), and Sue Eckert, Senior Associate with the CSIS Humanitarian Agenda, along with Bruno Demeyere, Editor-in-Chief of the International Review of the Red Cross.

This event is made possible through CSIS general support.
