India Foundation, in collaboration with the Government of Rajasthan is hosting the Counterterrorism Conference 2016 (CTC 2016) at Jaipur, Rajasthan on 2-3 February 2016. The theme of CTC 2016 will be “Tackling Global Terror Outfits”. This conference, brings together field operatives, senior officials from security agencies, policy makers, scholars and government leaders involved in counterterrorism operations, planning and sensitization. It provides an excellent platform for inter-agency and inter-governmental networking and knowledge exchange besides becoming a forum for opinion and information sharing.
Today’s world is enormously challenged by the terrorist outfits that draw their strength and sustenance from the geography and theology of their regions. It is also believed that some of them enjoy state sponsorship too. Tackling this challenge requires new thinking and collaborative action. The CTC 2016 will emphasize on understanding the phenomenon of the mushrooming terror outfits in the Middle East and its neighbourhood, their methodology, motivation and resources.
