The International Institute for Counter-Terrorism (ICT)'s 20th Annual World Summit on Counter-Terrorism will take place from September 10 through 14, 2021 at Reichman University (IDC) Herzliya, Israel. This year marks the 20th Anniversary of the ICT’s World Summit, which also coincides with the 25 years since the establishment of the ICT. ICT's 20th World Summit of Counter-Terrorism will focus on the cumulative counter-terrorism knowledge (practical and academic) that Israel has gathered throughout the years, whether confronting different terrorist threats or its counter-terrorism experience in different fields.

On the eve of its 74th anniversary, Israel has become a global benchmark for a democratic country facing decades of diverse terrorism challenges by developing new counter-terrorism doctrines,  modus operandi, and technologies. These topics and others will be discussed by top Israeli and international experts (scholars, heads of security and intelligence agencies, political decision-makers, and others) in keynote addresses and plenary sessions. 

Each year, the International Institute for Counter-Terrorism (ICT) at Reichman University (IDC), Herzliya hosts its World Summit on Counter-Terrorism. The prestige and unique combination of academic knowledge coupled with the Israeli Counter-Terrorism experience bring over 1,000 top decision-makers, defense, intelligence and police officials, prominent academic scholars, and security industry leaders from over 60 countries to Israel to participate in ICT’s Annual Conference. ICT's World Summit on Counter-Terrorism has become one of the largest and most influential events in the field of counter-terrorism today. The conference provides a vital opportunity for high-profile experts, practitioners, and decision-makers from diverse disciplines to establish professional relationships and serves as a platform for the formation of international cooperation. 

This year, the conference will take place in accordance with COVID19 regulations at the time. Sessions will be conducted in a hybrid way, where invited participants who are able to attend in person would be able to do so, and those who cannot, will participate online. 

*The physical attendance to the conference will be by invitation only, due to the COVID19 regulations.
