Enhancing Coordination in the Area of Security at Major Events

  • Barbara Maria Rohmann

Abstract

The UNICRI programme on security at major events is aimed at supporting policy-makers and practitioners in planning security during major events. On account of their scale and/or high visibility, major events (defined as any event requiring international cooperation with respect to security planning, such as large sporting events, including the Olympic Games, high-level summits and other mass events, such as national and religious festivals) are vulnerable target for unlawful activities, including terrorism, and can be exploited by organized criminal groups to further their illegal activities.
