UN Global Counter-Terrorism strategy

The United Nations Counter-Terrorism Online Handbook is an initiative that arose from the call of the United Nations Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy (A/RES/60/288) for the Counter-Terrorism Implementation Task Force (CTITF) to “ensure overall coordination and coherence in the counter-terrorism efforts of the United Nations system.”

Combining information from the 24-member Task Force, the Online Handbook provides Member States, UN country teams, and relevant institutions with information available United Nations counter-terrorism related resources.
