Oliver May & Paul Curwell (2020). Terrorist Diversion: A Guide to Prevention and Detection for NGOs by Routledge.


Terrorist Diversion: A Guide to Prevention and Detection for NGOs is an accessible, pragmatic guide for international NGOs of all shapes and sizes to help balance pressing security and financial crime risks against the demands of internal stakeholders, donors, banks, and regulators. Clearly explaining the nature of the challenge, and setting out a programme to meet it, it explores how it is possible for INGOs to manage these risks more effectively through their missions – not in spite of them.
