Watchlisting Guidance Manual Initiative Launch Event
22 January 2020
The Initiative, announced at the Sixteenth GCTF Coordinating Committee Meeting, will develop an international “Watchlisting Guidance Manual” toolkit, which will pool the collective knowledge of how to create and maintain a watchlist of known and suspected terrorists (KSTs). The toolkit, to be presented at GCTF Coordinating Committee Meeting in September 2020, will serve as a resource for nations to develop their own country-specific watchlisting guidance and to put into practice key parts of the GCTF New York Memorandum on Good Practices for Interdicting Terrorist Travel.
This event, first in a series of three meetings, focused on the objectives, benefits, and challenges of watchlisting.
