National Workshop on addressing Border Security and Counter Terrorism

The national workshop on ‘Addressing Border Security and Counter Terrorism by strengthening inter-agency cooperation in Border Management’ commenced on Tuesday. Commissioner of Police, Mohamed Hameed, officially inaugurated this three-day workshop in a special ceremony held at Bandos Island Resort. 

This is a joint-agency workshop by Maldives Immigration, International Organization for Migration (IOM) and United Nations Office of Counter-Terrorism (UNOCT). It is focused on good practices in border security and management ultimately to strengthen coordination and capacities to tackle terrorism and transnational organized crimes in the Maldives.

On national efforts in addressing border security and counter terrorism issues, this workshop intends to promote inter-agency cooperation to identify comprehensive responses to the cross-border crimes. Additionally, since global threat of terrorism has already been on our shores, this workshop aims to support government agencies by sharing of national and international best practices in order to facilitate policy level and operational decision making to address border security challenges. The workshop sessions are delivered by subject matter experts from International Organization for Migration, the United Nations Office on Counter Terrorism, the International Maritime Organization, the World Customs Organization and INTERPOL.

A total of twenty-six representatives from different government agencies related to this subject participated in this workshop, held from 3rd – 5th March 2020.
