preventive approach to peacebuilding that addresses the drivers of conflict. The potential for an alternative approach to CVE based on anti-violence and peacebuilding is enormous but, alas, the long-term approach will not tick any of the EU’s conditionality boxes, nor will it satisfy international donors’ eager fascination to demonstrate ‘success stories’. There are a number of examples, led by indigenous voices, which demonstrate how small, organic initiatives can bridge communities. The co-option of these initiatives by external regulators and experts has failed before

the role of the ‘regulator of a milieu’ (Foucault, 2007 : 29), representing both that in which circulation is carried out – the natural (such as rivers and hills) and the artificial (such as agglomerations of people and houses) – and the affects that bear on those who live in such spaces.

systems in humans could, for example, lead to the synthetic production of airborne bio-regulators ‘that can cross the blood-brain barrier and induce a state of sleep, confusion, or placidity, with potential applications in law enforcement, counter-terrorism and urban warfare’ (Tucker, quoted in Royal Society 2012 : 49). The human in warfare becomes the object of analysis for the potential of biological and neurological interference and the subject of targeting, based on this

The overreaction against Islamic charities had, he argued, a number of adverse effects: blockages in the flow of aid to beneficiaries; a reduction in donations; recourse by donors to transactions outside the purview of banking regulators; suspicions directed against bona fide charities; aggravated pressure on the resources of the few Islamic

-operation on the financing of terrorism has significantly grown. EU experts have been invited to participate in US terrorist financing assessment missions and to send trainers to support the delivery of US training programmes for financial regulators (Council of the European Union, 2006b, 2007b). The EU and the US have also held a series of joint workshops on financial sanctions to combat terrorism (Council of

It seems likely that the criminalization of material support for the zakat committees has in fact had the result of driving money underground, where it is outside the purview of banking regulators, because there are many ways of remitting funds other than through banking
