CGCC is a nonprofit, nonpartisan policy institute dedicated to strengthening international counterterrorism cooperation. It works with the United Nations, regional organizations, and within states as well as across communities and government officials to build partnerships to prevent terrorism. As transnational threats evolve, the Center also works to foster holistic, rule of law-based responses to organized crime and other forms of transnational violence.
CGCC and Managing Across Boundaries (MAB) collaborate on research, analysis, and on-the-ground programming across the Global South on issues from terrorism, the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, and other transnational criminal activities.
