Update on the Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Terrorism, Counter-Terrorism and Countering Violent Extremism   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Introduction: "The Counter-Terrorism Committee Executive Directorate (CTED) has been at the forefront of efforts to monitor and evaluate the impacts of the pandemic on terrorism, counter-terrorism and countering violent extremism (CVE), including through its two previous analytical reports, published in June and December 2020, respectively. More than a year after COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] was declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO), it continues to have a significant impact on the geopolitical landscape and in most domestic and foreign policy areas. Although some Member States have made progress in limiting the effects of the pandemic -- aided by vaccination programmes and other containment measures -- COVID-19 and its impacts continues to be widespread in many parts of the world. CTED has continued to analyse key trends, informed by its ongoing dialogue with Member States (including within the framework of the hybrid assessment visits currently being conducted on behalf of the Counter-Terrorism Committee) and with international and regional organizations. The present report combines this information with data collected by CTED through a survey of its partners aimed at gathering their views on the potential long-term impacts of the pandemic."
