UN Office of Counter Terrorism for Sporting Events

Youth resilience is recognized as an enabler of sustainable development in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, in Security Council resolution 2419 (2018) on Youth, Peace and Security, as well as in General Assembly resolution 73/24 on Sport.

A significant component of the UN Office of Counter-Terrorism and its partners’ work will be devoted to promoting sports and its value as an important tool to prevent radicalization and violent extremism conducive to terrorism.

Funded by the State of Qatar, the UN Peace and Development Fund and the Republic of Korea, UNOCT is leading the Global Programme implementation in partnership with the UN Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute, the UN Alliance of Civilizations and the International Centre for Sport Security as well as in consultation with the UN Counter-Terrorism Committee Executive Directorate and INTERPOL.
