This closed-door discussion brought together representatives of UN member states and agencies such as the Counter-Terrorism Committee Executive Directorate and the Counter-Terrorism Implementation Task Force to discuss how to encourage innovative approaches to integrating respect for human rights into counterterrorism efforts worldwide. The meeting focused on a training seminar organized by CGCC and the Intergovernmental Authority on Development Security Sector Program in October 2011 in Kampala, Uganda, which provided specialist training to interrogators from Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, and Uganda. Panelists included Tom Parker, former head of the Coalition Provisional Authority’s Crimes Against Humanity Investigation Unit; Liat Shetret, Programs Officer, CGCC; and Tony Camerino, former senior military interrogator in the team that tracked down Abu Musab al-Zarqawi in Iraq.
