Redefining development for national security: implications for civil society
Wright, K. 2009. Redefining development for national security: implications for civil society. Development in Practice. 19 (6), pp. 793-798.
The effects of counter-terrorism legislation on civil-society organisations (CSOs) based in the South have received little attention in the wider literature. This article reports on the findings of a series of international workshops to examine the effects of such legislation, held in Lebanon, the Kyrgyz Republic, India, the Netherlands, the UK, and the USA. The evidence presented at these workshops suggests that counter-terror legislation is undermining the work of civil society in complex and interrelated ways.
