A regional workshop dedicated to the effective implementation of targeted financial sanctions for terrorism, terrorist financing and proliferation of weapons of mass destruction took place in Strasbourg on 9-10 December 2019. Seventeen practitioners representing the financial intelligence and law enforcement bodies from the six Eastern Partnership countries increased awareness about international standards regarding the legal framework to prevent and counter terrorist financing and proliferation financing, and effective national coordination and supervisory mechanisms to counter proliferation and terrorist threats. The participants shared practices, challenges and practical information in the implementation of terrorist financing sanctions and counter-proliferation financing provisions as well as international cooperation on these matters.

The regional workshop was organized within the EU/CoE Partnership for Good Governance II Regional Project “Strengthening measures to prevent and combat economic crime” (2019-2021).
