The Counter-Terrorism Committee Executive Directorate (CTED) works to bolster the ability of United Nations Member States to prevent terrorist acts both within their borders and across regions. Through its work, CTED seeks to strengthen and more systematically engage civil society organizations at the global, regional, national, and local levels with a focus on human rights, gender, and youth.


In 2015, the UN Security Council approved a resolution to improve implementation of its landmark women, peace, and security agenda, covering its work on countering violent extremism and terrorism. The U.N. Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1325 integrated women, peace, and security concerns across all country-specific situations on its agenda.


The Handa Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence (CSTPV) at the University of St Andrews in Scotland is the oldest academic research centre for the study of terrorism in Europe. Although inter-disciplinary in its expertise, it has a particular concentration of scholars working on political science and international relations.


The International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation and Political Violence (ICSR) is a non-profit, non-governmental think tank based in the Department of War Studies at King’s College London whose mission is to educate the public and help policymakers and practitioners find more intelligent solutions in dealing with radicalization and political violence.
