2nd SEE Regional Coordination Conference on Counter-Terrorism and Prevention and Countering Violent Extremism
For the second time in a row, the Regional Cooperation Council (RCC) is organizing the Regional Coordination Conference in the area of Counter-Terrorism (CT) and Prevention and Countering Violent Extremism (P/CVE), together with Slovenian SEECP Chairmanship-in-Office, in cooperation with the Police Cooperation Convention for Southeast Europe (PCC SEE). The event will gather representatives of national governments and international and regional organizations and initiatives active in the field, to discuss the enhancement of cooperation and coordination of CT and P/CVE programmes and activities in South East Europe (SEE).
The Conference boosts mutual understanding of all relevant stakeholders and will result in specific conclusions and recommendations on future direction of joint CT and P/CVE efforts in SEE. The participants will talk about the current trends and challenges, as well as activities at European, regional, and national level and the ways of implementing already agreed “whole of government, whole of society” approach in P-CVE.
Separate meetings of the three specialized regional formats for CT and P/CVE are taking place as an integral and important part of the Conference: RCC's SEE Group of National Focal Points (NFP) for Prevention and Countering Violent Extremism (NFP Group); Police Cooperation Convention for Southeast Europe (PCC SEE) CT Network; and the Counter-Terrorism Initiative (CTI) Network.
The meeting will also hear about the activities and results achieved since the last Coordination Conference, held in November 2016 in Tirana.
The Conference will take place in Slovenia, hosted by the Slovenian Ministry of Home Affairs.
