Statement of opinion on the impact of counter-terrorism legislation on humanitarian action

The CNCDH intends to draw public authorities’ attention to the potential effects of international and French counter-terrorism legislation on the effectiveness and impartiality of humanitarian action, and, in particular, on humanitarian access during armed conflict.

With many interviews having highlighted the sometimes tragic realities witnessed by humanitarian organisations, the CNCDH has endeavoured to provide a reminder of the international legal framework from both of its perspectives before focusing on the obstacles reported to it with a view to identifying good practices that should be generalised in order to preserve humanitarian action.
