The 2nd UNCCT International Conference on Engaging Partners for Capacity Building followed up on its first 2013 iteration in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. For 2014, the Conference covered three thematic issue areas. First is the threat posed by foreign terrorist fighters (FTFs), as highlighted by the increased violence in the Syria-Iraq frontier, now controlled by the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). Second was the emerging best practices and policy gaps in countering violent extremism (CVE). Third theme centred on capacity-building and resource mobilisation issues faced by security sector stakeholders.
