Workshop on Counter-Terrorism/Addressing Violent Extremism, Brindisi

31/05/2018 - 01/06/2018

Target Country / Organisation

The aim of the workshop was to bring together the two OROLSI standing capacities and representatives from police and justice and corrections components in peace operations to explore the relationship between the international counter-terrorism framework (as established by the United Nations Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy and relevant SC resolutions), mission mandates, and possible support to host States’ relevant rule of law entities.

  • Raised awareness of DPKO Police, Justice, and Corrections components about  the UN Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy, relevant SC resolutions and the UN Global Counter-Terrorism Coordination Compact, highlighting expectations in support of Member States that are expressed within;
  • Taken stock of how Police, Justice and Corrections components are already contributing to CT/PVE through relevant capacity-building activities;
  • Explored how JCSC, SPC, Police Division and Justice and Corrections can contribute to and support specific peace operations by identifying possible CT-PVE strategies, cross-cutting or sector specific, reconciling the various CT resolutions, specific mission Mandated priorities and Country specific priorities, using UNSOM, MINUSMA, UNMIK, UNOGBIS, UNAMA and UNAMI as case studies.
