Training aims to establish the OSCE mobile training team to deliver on-site training to border security and management officials to be able to better identify and interview potential foreign terrorist fighters.


Summary

Outcomes of the training include the increased capacity of border security and management services on identification and interviewing potential foreign terrorist fighters (FTFs) in full compliance with international human rights standards, at entry and exit border check points of OSCE participating States.

This training is the first phase in an ongoing project. During the second phase, a six-day advanced training course on addressing cross-border challenges in identifying and interviewing potential FTFs will be conducted for up to 15 border security and management officers and counter-terrorism experts at the OSCE Border Management Staff College (OSCE BMSC) in Dushanbe, Tajikistan. The third phase of this project will include the first deployment of the OSCE mobile training team to the selected border crossing points (e.g. international airports, land borders and/or seaports) to deliver training on identification and interviewing of potential FTFs, to personnel assigned at these locations.
