Analysis of the non-profit sector in the EU15 for monitoring and control

Funded under: FP7-SSH

Abstract

The report "Analysis of the EU15 Non-profit Sector for Monitoring and Control" was written in the context of the European Commission forum "Support against Terrorist Financing" by Directorate General Justice, Liberty and Security (JLS), and of a Joint Research Centre (JRC) research project to support monitoring and control for EU aid funds. The report's purpose is to give an overview of the non-profit sector in EU15 with specific attention to the prevention of fraudulent use of funds in this sector, in general, and terrorist financing in particular. This report is complemented by the report "Analysis of the EU10 Non-profit Sector for Monitoring and Control" which concentrates on the non profit sector in the ten new countries.
Though the "fight against terrorist financing" acquired added political significance in recent times and has monopolised attention, the more general problem of the misuse of funds by the non-profit sector has existed for quite some time - well before the recent terrorist attacks -and needs to be considered as a problem in its own right.
It is a fact that the recent terrorist events helped to bring the non-profit sector into the spotlight demanding stronger action to increase transparency and accountability in this area.
