#WiltonPark conference last month on #humanitarian assistance and ‘new’ #donors working group discussion led and moderated by Dr. Hany El-Banna on partnerships between #governments and #national/#international #CSOs. There were some useful recommendations made in this debate, for example on the nature of a regulatory framework: an appropriate degree of regulation being necessary, but not as an impediment to CSOs rather enabling them to operate freely under it. The conference report will be issued shortly, we will keep you posted!
