In this issue, the International Journal of Not-for-Profit Law focuses on counterterrorism and civil society. Elizabeth A. Bloodgood of Concordia University and Joannie Tremblay-Boire of the University of Washington, Seattle, categorize the different ways in which NGOs have responded to post-9/11 counterterrorism restrictions in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, and Japan. Jude Howell of the London School of Economics examines effects of the post-9/11 global security framework on global aid. Frank van Lierde of Cordaid interviews Asha El-Karib of the Gender Centre for Research and Training about counterterrorism measures and other challenges she has faced in Sudan.

In other articles, David Z. Nowell, Ph.D., of Hope Unlimited for Children provides an organizational perspective on charities and their relations with governments and cultures. Dragan Golubovic of the European Center for Not-for-Profit Law outlines issues involved in developing an enabling framework for the participation of citizens in public policy. Zein Kebonang of the Botswana-UPenn Partnership and Kabelo Kenneth Lebotse of the University of Botswana reflect on the legislative environment in which NGOs operate in Botswana.Igor Vidačak of the Office for Cooperation with NGOs of the Government of the Republic of Croatia summarizes the developing standards for public financing of Croatian NGOs. Katerina Hadzi-Miceva-Evans of the European Center for Not-for-Profit Law examines the lottery as a means of supporting civil society organizations.
