Recently, the Partnership Dialogue between the GCTF and the GCTF Inspired Institutions – Global Community Engagement and Resilience Fund (GCERF), Hedayah, and the International Institute for Justice and the Rule of Law (IIJ) – was held. During the engagement, the organizations examined ways to enhance the value of the Inspired Institutions, create more synergies, garner efficiency in the ways of working for continuous improvement. The conversations also spotlighted the value of the work done by the Inspired Institutions in support of counterterrorism and P/CVE efforts and in support of a stronger Forum. What's more, the engagement explored various avenues to increase the visibility of activities through communication and engagement as well as taking a moment to take stock of joint activities and evolving cooperation.
The Partnership Dialogues are meetings held regularly to enable the entities to come together to discuss the changing terrorism landscape, the needs required to enhance resilience in local communities, and to explore new opportunities of collaboration. The Inspired Institutions lead capacity-building projects worldwide, including North Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa, the Balkans, Central, South and Southeast Asia. Their work has included implementing GCTF products, and tackling topics such as foreign-terrorist fighters, countering violent extremism, criminal justice and rule of law responses to terrorist acts.
