Description

This regional workshop aimed to explore and discuss ways to identify and improve co-operation among the national stakeholders in the Central Asia region, not only in the prevention and investigation of terrorism, but also on how to better co-ordinate efforts in case an attack has been perpetrated.

Summary

The experts meeting was organised by the Strategic Police Matters Unit (SPMU) in cooperation with the Action Against Terrorism Unit (ATU) and the OSCE Project Co-ordinator in Uzbekistan.

This was a follow-up of the conclusions adopted in an expert meeting on the “Police role in the fight against terrorism” organised in Madrid in May 2007, where it was recommended the need to increase efforts to improve the exchange of information and the cooperation among national and international agencies, particularly among Intelligence and Police agencies.

The workshop, inter alia, contributed to the enhancement of inter-agency co-operation among security agencies in Central Asia that are involved in counter-terrorism activities by addressing key issues such as best practices in information exchange and intelligence sharing, national and regional co-operation and post-attack co-ordination and investigation.
