Terrorism Prevention

National efforts in strengthening and developing legislative frameworks, policies and strategies against terrorism and its financing are being supported, in line with international conventions and protocols and relevant UN Security Council resolutions.  

The strengthening of knowledge and skills of criminal justice officers, in accordance with human rights principles and rule-of-law based standards, is actively supported.  Substantive emphasis is placed on enhancing interagency and interdisciplinary collaboration for successful prevention and prosecution of terrorism-related cases, building on successful outcomes already achieved in this field by some Member States in the region.  UNODC assists with:

  1. Strengthening legislative and policy frameworks;
  2. Enhancing knowledge and skills to investigate and prosecute cases; and
  3. Enhancing mechanisms for regional and international cooperation.
