Strengthening Multilateral Capacity: Roundtable on Countering Global Terrorism
As part of its work on strengthening multilateral capacity, IPI's Coping with Crisis program held a roundtable meeting on countering global terrorism at the Trygve Lie Center for Peace, Security, and Development. The roundtable was the third in a series within IPI's "Task Force One: Transnational Security Challenges."
It opened with an overview of the issues associated with countering terrorism, and then featured sessions devoted to in-depth discussions on topics such as the current institutional shortcomings in counterterrorism; why previous efforts to overcome these shortcomings have failed; what policy and institutional renovations are needed; and strategies for achieving these renovations.
