The Virtual Counter-Terrorism Week organized by UNOCT, brought together the Member States, United Nations entities, civil society representatives, international and regional organizations, thought leaders, the private sector and other key stakeholders to improve our collective understanding of the impact and potential consequences of the COVID-19 crisis on terrorism landscape, as well as Member States’ counter-terrorism needs, priorities and expectations.

The Virtual Counter-Terrorism Week provided a timely opportunity to exchange expert analysis and innovative ideas on what the COVID-19 pandemic means for the counter-terrorism community and how we need to adjust our responses.
