Guide on the Security of Major Sporting Events: Promoting Sustainable Security and Legacies

The Guide represents one of the milestones of the “Global Programme on the Security of Major Sporting Events, and Promotion of Sport and its Values as a Tool to Prevent Violent Extremism”, an initiative led by the UNOCT, in partnership with UNICRI, UNAOC and the ICSS, and in consultation with the United Nations Counter-Terrorism Committee Executive Directorate (CTED), and with the contributions of Members States, international and regional organisations such as INTERPOL and the Council of Europe, sports associations, the business sector and academia.
The 195-page Guide, which will be available in all six United Nations official languages, represents a significant step forward in the advancement of policies to mitigate risks to eventual targets in the context of major sporting events.
The publication provides hosting nations with a reference document showcasing all the forms of technical assistance available at the international level, as provided by international and regional organisations such as the UN, INTERPOL, the Council of Europe and WHO, as well as sport bodies and specialised stakeholders like the ICSS.
