Effective and Inclusive Global Counter-Terrorism Policy (New York - 20 - 23.10.11)

Seminar Background

This seminar was convened in New York and titled “Towards An Effective and Inclusive Global Counter-Terrorism Policy,”. This was a global civil society-led conference organized by the Global Partnership for the Prevention of Armed Conflict (GPPAC) and a Dutch NGO CORDAID. In January 2011, GPPAC and Cordaid initiated a strategic collaboration to establish civil society monitoring of the UN Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy. The global civil society conference in New York represents a further step in these collaborative partnerships. The conference, “Towards an Effective and Inclusive Counter-Terrorism Policy”, brought together representatives from civil society and the UN, in order to establish a dialogue towards an inclusive counter-terrorism framework.
