The identification of common practices and standards to protect tourism security is a key aspect to harmonize policies for the protection of vulnerable targets and crowded spaces.

The main focus of the project was the development of practices to ensure crime and terrorism prevention through an innovative and holistic approach, involving different public agencies and the private sectors, in line with the GCTF Antalya Memorandum and the SC Resolution 2396.


In recent times, the phenomenon of “foreign terrorist fighters” (FTFs) has expanded worldwide, especially in connection with the ongoing conflicts in Syria and Iraq. Although accurate and reliable data on FTFs are difficult to obtain, estimates suggest that more than 40.000 individuals have travelled from more than 100 countries in the world to join this conflict.

The increased number of returning FTFs, along with the increased frequency of terrorist acts worldwide, represents a challenge for international and national security.
