Sir Stephen Bubb welcomes report on challenges for aid charities

Commenting on the publication of the Overseas Development Institute report UK humanitarian aid in the age of counter-terrorism: perceptions and reality, Sir Stephen Bubb, CEO of ACEVO said:

“I welcome this report. It is exactly the calm, measured and constructive contribution we need in the debate on humanitarian charities’ work in war zones and other difficult environments. It’s also a clarion call to Government and the Charity Commission to work constructively with charities to ensure the risks in their work are mitigated early and openly. Too often, anti-extremism and anti-terrorism regulation is counterproductive when it touches charities, so I hope this report will help reduce such problems in future.”
