CGCC’s work emphasizes the inherent linkages among respect for human rights, good governance, and effectively combating terrorism and aims to address the tensions that sometimes emerge among these concepts in practice. CGCC has provided analysis and recommendations for better integrating human rights considerations into the UN counterterrorism program, including to the Security Council’s sanctions regime. CGCC also conducts human rights–focused trainings as part of its capacity-building work in different regions around the world. For example, in 2011, CGCC piloted a four-day training seminar in Uganda on human rights–compliant interrogation techniques. In 2012, CGCC and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark cohost a conference that focused on various human rights issues, identifying guidance to ensure those standards are upheld, as part of ongoing efforts to build capabilities to address counterterrorism and human rights issues in third countries.
