International Cooperation and Partnerhips

Project Description

The International Cooperation and Partnership Program aims to promote international cooperation and coordination on counterterrorism policy and programs in the Hemisphere through development of partnerships with international, multilateral, regional, and sub-regional organizations, as well as with security and technical agencies of individual countries.

The CICTE Secretariat serves as a clearinghouse of information and technical assistance on counter-terrorism policy and programs on behalf of OAS Member States. To do so, the Secretariat promotes coordination with many international partners, such as the United Nations (UN CTED, UNODC, UNICRI), other International Organizations (ICAO, IMO, INTERPOL), regional organizations (APEC, OSCE, the Council of Europe, the Commonwealth Secretariat), sub-regional organizations (CARICOM, SICA), and the technical agencies of major donors, such as the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (Coast Guard, Transportation Security Agency, Customs and Border Protection), Canada (Transport Canada, Canadian Border Services Agency), Spain, and Israel. A network of National Points of Contacts from each country serves as a means of communicating with each other and with the Secretariat on technical issues.
