World Counter Terror Congress

National strategies for countering violent extremism and the threat of terrorism

The threat from international terrorism has grown over the last few years. The devastating attacks have caused major loss of life, destruction of property and economic damage across the globe. The global security community needs to continually stay one step ahead of the threat from violent extremist groups, combining the latest technology with constantly evolving operational strategies and policy. This starts with counter extremism – the prevention of marginalisation that creates a breeding ground for terrorism – and moves through intelligence-gathering on potential attacks to discuss operations for shutting down imminent incidents.

As nations seek to advance their resilience and ability to combat the global terrorist threat, there is need for collaboration on shared challenges faced. The World Counter Terror Congress provides a high level platform for discussion of the current threat and approaches to safeguarding our nations from it.

Aligned with the UK’s CONTEST strategy, the conference will cover a broad spectrum of priorities, including de-radicalisation and the prevention of individuals/groups from engaging in terrorist activity, protective security measures and the safeguarding of our societies as well as intelligence led operations and the pursuit of terrorist suspects.

WCTC will bring together over 300 internationally recognised security experts at a closed door, paid-for conference as they seek to find the strategic and operational approach to fight terrorism.
