Compliance with national laws

The era of the 'cowboys' is long gone. Today, humanitarian agencies must comply with overlapping sets of regulations, those concerning registration and the scope of work, others governing their financial accountability and employment practices. Broadly, administrative compliance comprises an area of increasing attention, and in some states there is a marked drift of administrative regulation into obstruction and control. Of additional note, the past decade has seen increasing concern voiced over the impact on humanitarian action of international financial regulations designed to block funding flows to groups designated as terrorist.
