Seventh Meeting of the GCTF Coordinating Committee
The IIJ participated at the Seventh Meeting of the Global Counterterrorism Forum (GCTF) Coordinating Committee in Doha, Qatar on 6-7 May. The GCTF is a multilateral counterterrorism body with 30 founding members (29 countries plus the EU) from around the world. This event was held at the level of national counterterrorism coordinator, focal point from the foreign ministry, or other appropriate senior counterterrorism policymaker. During the first day, participants had the opportunity to take stock of the work of the Forum from the six GCTF thematic and geographic working groups since the previous Coordinating Committee meeting and determine priorities going forward. On the second day, the IIJ Executive Secretary, along with the respective heads of the other two GCTF-inspired institutions (GCERF and Hedayah) provided the Coordinating Committee with updates on the developments from their respective institutions over the past year.
