Egypt & EU to Co-Chair Meeting with Global Counter-Terrorism Forum

Established in 2011, the Global Counterterrorism Forum has served as an informal and apolitical platform for counterterrorist officials and practitioners from 30 participating member states to share their expertise and learn from one another. Egypt was one of its founding member states, and now it plans to co-chair the Coordinating Committee meeting alongside the European Union in March 2022, taking over from Canada and Morocco after they co-chaired the biannual meeting in October 2021.

The forum works closes with the UN Global Counter-Terrorism Coordination Compact as well as a number of international and regional organizations to strengthen national anti-terrorism capacities and stem their growth on the global scale. 

Since 2017, Egypt has been co-chairing the Capacity-Building Working Group for the East African region to aid in the implementation of effective counterterrorism practices in the criminal justice sector.
