Counter-Terrorism Implementation Task Force

UN Counter-Terrorism Centre (UNCCT)

About Us

The UNCCT was established in 2011 within the United Nations Counter-Terrorism Implementation Task Force (CTITF), under the leadership of the CTITF, to assist in meeting capacity-building needs of Member States, and to strengthen United Nations' counter-terrorism expertise. The Centre engages with the over 30 CTITF entities with expertise on a broad spectrum of counter terrorism related issues. The UNCCT relies on existing expertise within the CTITF to reinforce current United Nations counter terrorism initiatives and to promote new ideas to avoid duplication of efforts. The UNCCT conducts regular consultations with the different CTITF Working Groups in order to identify valuable projects falling within the strategic priorities of the UNCCT and to monitor their implementation.
