First Global Parliamentary Summit on Counter-Terrorism
The Global Parliamentary Summit on Countering Terrorism is the first such Summit to be held in partnership between the IPU and the United Nations.
The Summit will be taking place at a critical time, as the international community and global and national economies seek to recover from the devastating Covid-19 pandemic. This Summit will allow parliamentarians to identify lasting solutions and make a parliamentary contribution to global efforts in counter-terrorism and the prevention of violent extremism, with robust action and a real impact on communities, in particular the victims of terrorism.
