Members of Parliament play a critical role in preventing and countering terrorism and violent extremism, working hand-in-hand with Governments. The agreement provides a framework for fostering the engagement of parliamentarians from the Euro-Mediterranean and Gulf regions in the implementation of the United Nations Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy and relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions. With generous support of the Shura Council of the State of Qatar, UNOCT is opening a Programme Office on Parliamentary Engagement in Preventing and Countering Terrorism in Doha in the second half of 2021 to foster collaboration with the global parliamentary community and multilateral parliamentary organizations.
