This briefing paper outlines some results of the activities of INTRAC, the International NGO Research and Training Centre, over the past year through workshops and research into counterterrorism and its implications for development NGOs and civil society. The three main areas of focus have been to assess the implications of anti terror legislation on the function of NGOs and civil society organisations (CSOs) by region, both in terms of actual and perceived effects of the ‘war on terror’ (WoT); to understand the implications of counter-terrorism for official development assistance (ODA) and, finally, to try and set the empirical evidence in some form of conceptual framework for understanding trends and assessing their policy implications.
