Неделя борьбы с терроризмом 2020 года (в онлайн-режиме)

2020 Virtual Counter-Terrorism Week, July 6-10

The Second Counter-Terrorism Week at the United Nations was anticipated to take place from 29 June to 3 July 2020 at the UN Headquarters, New York. This 2020 Counter-Terrorism Week was planned to include the Seventh Biennial Review of the United Nations Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy, the first ever United Nations Global Congress of Victims of Terrorism, as well as the Second United Nations High-Level Conference of Heads of Counter-Terrorism Agencies of Member States.

Due to the COVID-19 crisis and following the decision of the General Assembly to postpone the review of the United Nations Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy to its 75th session, the entire 2020 Counter-Terrorism Week is postponed.


Countering Terrorism in a Global Pandemic Environment

The Virtual Counter-Terrorism Week will be held from 6-10 July and convened under the overarching theme of “Strategic and Practical Challenges of Countering Terrorism in a Global Pandemic Environment”. 

The event will be launched on Monday 6 July 2020 at 10:00 am (New York time) with an opening two-hour high-level session titled “Post COVID-19 World: Contours and Pivot Points and Benefits of Multilateral Collaboration.”

Thereafter, the Week will include nine additional webinars and interactive discussions focusing on priorities such as bio and cyber terrorism, high-risk threats and trends, addressing the plight of victims of terrorism, flagship UN counter-terrorism programmes, human rights and counter-terrorism, countering the financing of terrorism, youth-led initiatives to build resilient societies, and civil society and media perspectives to prevent violent extremism, among others. 

The event will provide an opportunity to bring Member States, United Nations entities, thought leaders, civil society representatives and other stakeholders together to exchange views, through strategic and expert-level online events, on what the new circumstances created by the COVID-19 pandemic mean for the counter-terrorism landscape.

The Opening, UNCCT Expo Launch and Closing sessions will be webcast live on: https://webtv.un.org

2020 Virtual Counter-Terrorism Week Expo

Неделя борьбы с терроризмом 2018 года

Первая Конференция высокого уровня руководителей контртеррористических учреждений государств-членов (Неделя борьбы с терроризмом 2018 года) была созвана Генеральным секретарем Антониу Гутерришем 28-29 июня 2018 года в Нью-Йорке в рамках темы «Укрепление международного сотрудничества в целях борьбы с меняющейся угрозой терроризма».

Глобальная контртеррористическая стратегия ООН

8 сентября 2006 года Генеральная Ассамблея Организации Объединенных Наций приняла консенсусом Глобальную контртеррористическую стратегию Организации Объединенных Наций. Стратегия является уникальным глобальным инструментом для наращивания национальных, региональных и международных усилий по борьбе с терроризмом. Генеральная Ассамблея проводит обзор Стратегии раз в два года, что делает ее живым документом, в котором учитываются приоритеты государств-членов в области борьбы с терроризмом.
