To support the Central Asian States in raising awareness about the full respect for human rights and the rule of law as the fundamental basis of the fight against terrorism, within the framework of the Phases III and IV of the project "Towards a comprehensive implementation of the United Nations Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy in Central Asia", United Nations Office of Counter-Terrorism – United Nations Counter-Terrorism Centre (UNOCT-UNCCT) and United Nations Regional Centre for Preventive Diplomacy for Central Asia (UNRCCA) in partnership with United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR), United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS), Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) for Central Asia and UNICEF developed an e-learning course on the protection and promotion of human rights and the rule of law in the context of counter-terrorism in Central Asia. This 11-module course designed for students and professionals dealing with security and counter-terrorism in the region covers a variety of topics, ranging from fundamental human rights and counter-terrorism-related facts to specific human rights relevant to the Central Asian context – and much more.

The side events will provide a space to inform, raise awareness, foster understanding, stimulate debate and dialogue, gain political support and influence, and establish networks. Side events offer a platform for rich discussion to generate innovative and fruitful recommendations regarding some of the most acute counter-terrorism and prevention and countering of violent extremism (CT/PCVE) challenges. The outcomes of these events are expected to enrich the main conference's plenary discussions, to help accelerate global momentum and deepen international commitment to implementing the United Nation's Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy.

The 2022 UNOCT Málaga Conference will bring together Member States, United Nations Global Counter-Terrorism Coordination Compact entities, international and regional organizations, human rights and civil society organizations, experts and other stakeholders to engage in a robust and practical exchange of innovative ideas on how to strengthen social cohesion, build resilience, and effectively embed human rights, gender equality and the rule of law into the international community's response to terrorism and violent extremism, while safeguarding and promoting human rights, in particular the rights of women, children, and victims of terrorism.
