Counter Terror Congress

Subpage Hero

Developing Strategies for the Defeat of International Terrorism

No single nation, institution, or organisation can defeat terrorism alone. A co-ordinated response is necessary to tackle the ideologies fuelling international terrorism and strengthen society's ability to protect itself as threats persist.

The Counter Terror Congress (CTC) provides a "closed-door" opportunity for the national security community to deliberate common challenges in the CT space. For attendees, it provides an unrivalled opportunity to hear from those driving the fight against terrorism globally.

This highly participatory programme is essential for any senior security professional tasked with understanding serious security threats, defining operational strategies and shaping future policies.

Core themes

Across a hybrid programme delivered in-person and online, CTC will explore these core themes:

"A Hybrid Event" - what does that mean?

In response to Covid-19, we have been reviewing the format of our conference delivery in order to maximise the value for participants and make the event as accessible as possible for a global audience. 

With this in mind, CTC 2021 will be delivered in a hybrid format, allowing attendees to choose whether to meet in-person and/or access content digitally. A range of session formats will be delivered in real time and made available on demand.
