The UK supports UN Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 2396 and the associated Madrid Guiding Principles, and contributed to the drafting of both. We encourage Member States to fully implement UNSCR 2396.

We work with a number of multilateral bodies such as UN, Global Counter Terrorism Forum, and the Global Coalition against Daesh amongst others.

The Government published its updated counter-terrorism strategy, CONTEST, in July 2018. As the Home Secretary set out, it is through working together, with the police, security and intelligence agencies, the private and public sectors, civil society, international partners, and the public, that we will reduce the risk of terrorism and ensure that terrorists cannot and will not change our way of life.
