ICCT Annual Conference 2022 - Global power politics, Counter-terrorism, and Human rights

09 Nov 2022

On the 7th and 8th of November 2022, the International Centre for Counter-Terrorism was delighted to host its Annual Conference (in-person and online)! This year’s conference theme was “Global power politics, Counter-terrorism, and Human rights”. Under that broad theme, we discussed with high-level experts about how great powers' rivalry and geopolitics are having an impact on the global counter-terrorism agenda, including its Human Rights dimension. We hope all attendees enjoyed the Plenary Sessions and Workshops, and we look forward to engage in future activities.

If you miss part of the event and wish to watch it again, the recordings of the Plenary Sessions are available on the ICCT YouTube Channel.  The new ICCT website and the Foreign Terrorist Fighters Knowledge Hub will be available online soon. Keep an eye at our current website for updates!
