Parliamentary Responses to Countering Terrorism and Violent Extremism
Date: 30 November 2021
Time: 14:00 UTC
Parliament plays a central role in preventing and countering terrorism and violent extremism. Through law-making, budgeting and oversight processes, as well as representing citizens and working and with vulnerable communities and individuals, Parliamentarians actively contribute to national and international counter-terrorism efforts. Parliaments can work to ensure governments comply with international obligations, and utilise parliamentary scrutiny mechanisms such as committees, inquiries, and public platforms to hold the government to account and raise the profile of issues.
The session will be an interactive dialogue between Commonwealth Parliamentarians intimately involved in policy and legislative responses to terrorism and violent extremism, as well as leading practitioners in the field.
