This launch event is organized by OSCE Transnational Threats Department (TNTD) and the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) with the aim to present the new OSCE Guidebook and related case studies, followed by a discussion.
The guidebook provides policy guidance on central issues that can have an impact on the success or failure of police efforts to harness a community-policing approach to preventing terrorism and countering violent extremism and radicalization that lead to terrorism. It is, therefore, primarily intended for policymakers and senior police professionals. However, it may also be a useful resource for members of civil society with an interest in these issues, in particular community leaders.
The guidebook is the result of a joint project carried out by TNTD and ODIHR, with the financial support of Australia, Liechtenstein, Switzerland and the United States of America.
