The GCTF Capacity-building in the East Africa Region Working Group (EAWG)
The overarching mission of the Global Counterterrorism Forum (GCTF) is to promote a strategic, long-term approach to counterterrorism and the violent extremist ideologies conducive to terrorism that underpin it. Established in September 2017 to broaden the scope of the previous GCTF Horn of Africa Working Group, the EAWG aims to address terrorism and the dynamics and requirements of violent extremism conducive to terrorism in the region by mobilising adequate resources and enhancing the capacity of national actors. It provides a forum for information exchange, networking and cooperation among a variety of stakeholders to promote dialogue, understanding, sharing of analysis and lessons learned with a view to build collaborative partnerships in and for the region.
