The OSCE has a comprehensive approach to security that encompasses politico-military, economic and environmental, and human aspects. It therefore addresses a wide range of security-related concerns, including arms control, confidence- and security-building measures, human rights, combating human trafficking, national minorities, democratization, policing strategies, counter-terrorism and economic and environmental activities. All 57 participating States enjoy equal status, and decisions are taken by consensus on a politically, but not legally binding basis.
The Transnational Threats Department/Action against Terrorism Unit (TNTD/ATU) is the focal point for co-ordinating and facilitating OSCE anti-terrorism activities. TNTD/ATU contributes to the implementation of the OSCE's counter-terrorism commitments by providing support to the Chairperson-in-Office, the Secretary General and the participating States on anti-terrorism matters and by enhancing co-ordination within the OSCE on related issues. TNTD/ATU also assists participating States with implementing their relevant commitments in this area, as defined by relevant decisions, and acts on requests from participating States to assist in enhancing their capacities to respond to current and emerging terrorist threats. TNTD/ATU supports the work of relevant UN bodies and enhances co-operation with external partners and other regional organizations in preventing and countering terrorism.
“Implementation of the ‘Leaders against intolerance and Violent Extremism’ (LIVE) Training Courses” is a flagship TNTD/ATU ExB project designed to build the capacity of civil society in fostering community resilience to VERLT. It supports the implementation of Ministerial Council Declaration No. 4/15 on Preventing and Countering Violent Extremism and Radicalization that Lead to Terrorism. This intervention is a continuation of an ExB project launched in 2016 under which TNTD/ATU commenced the development and piloting of three LIVE training curricula tailored to youth leaders, women leaders and community leaders.
The overall objective of the current project is to strengthen community resilience to violent extremism and radicalization that lead to terrorism through effective implementation of the ‘Leaders against Intolerance and Violent Extremism’ (LIVE) training courses.
The current project supports those training courses delivered in and planned for 2018 – 2021, by: (i) establishing a cadre of LIVE facilitators through a series of regionally tailored train-the-trainer (ToT) seminars; (ii) leveraging and tailoring the #UnitedCVE campaign to enhance visibility and reach of the local initiatives generated by LIVE graduates; and (iii) providing overarching guidance and co-ordination in support of funding and sustainability of LIVE training and related activities.
