IIJ participated in the GCTF Working Group on Horn of Africa held in Brussels on 11 June 2015, which highlighted recent developments of the GCTF action in the region. The meeting was co-chaired by the EU and Turkey and included GCTF members and the IIJ and other partners’ representatives (UN, ICCT, IGAD, AU/CAERT).The participants described their work in the areas such as terrorism financing, Countering Violent Extremism (CVE), and Foreign Terrorism Fighters (FTF). The IIJ described the findings of the GCTF Rule of Law Working Group, which the IIJ hosted in April, and detailed its its development of a Rule of Law initiative in the area of the judicial preparedness to confront CT challenges, a regional gap identified at the prior GCTF Horn of Africa meeting in Kampala in March.
