CGCC hosted this conference with the goal of focusing attention on cooperative nonmilitary counterterrorism efforts and steps the United States can take to strengthen those efforts. Participants included current senior U.S. and foreign government officials, senior representatives from the United Nations and regional organizations, academic and other nongovernmental experts, and members of CGCC’s international advisory council. The conference highlighted the comparative advantages of multilateral bodies in general and specifically as they relate to efforts to strengthen cooperation in two priority regions for U.S. counterterrorism efforts, South Asia and the Horn of Africa.
