Counter-Terrorism Fusion Centre

INTERPOL’s Counter-Terrorism Fusion Centre (CTF) investigates the organizational hierarchies, training, financing, methods and motives of terrorist groups.

In particular, Project Foreign Terrorist Fighters has been set up to address the issue of individuals who travel to a country that is not their own, for the purpose of planning, preparing or participating in terrorist acts, especially in conflict zones, and the threat to other countries after their training in these conflict zones.

The CTF’s activities are global in scope and implemented through a number of regionally focused but interlinked projects. The aim is to improve the exchange of law enforcement information across borders and to enrich law enforcement practices.

  • Project Al Qabdah (Middle East and North Africa);
  • Project Amazon (Americas);
  • Project Baobab (Africa);
  • Project Kalkan (Central Asia);
  • Project Nexus (Europe);
  • Project Pacific (Southeast Asia and Pacific Islands).

Other major projects focus on:

  • terrorist use of social media and the internet;
  • hostage-taking for ransom.
