About the Speech:
 
Mr Wucthe first outlined how the OSCE intends to enhance efforts to address the issue of foreign terrorist fighters and support the recent UN Strategy on Preventing Violent Extremism.  He explained how the OSCE’s comprehensive approach to security, which embraces human rights and democracy, economics and the environment as well as politico-military security, offers a coherent method to address violent extremism and radicalisation that leads to terrorism. Mr Wuchte also discussed the Ministerial Declaration on "Preventing and Countering Violent Extremism and Radicalisation that Lead to Terrorism" which was adopted by the 57 OSCE participating States in December 2015.
 
 
About the Speaker:
 
Thomas Wuchte took over as the Head of the OSCE Transnational Threats Department/Action against Terrorism Unit in March 2012. Before assuming his duties at the OSCE, he was the United States Special Coordinator for United Nations Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1540 – a component of the UN Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy with a focus on keeping weapons of mass destruction from terrorists. In 2010, Wuchte received the U.S. Department of State's Award for Excellence in International Security Affairs from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for his efforts in working collaboratively with international partners. He has extensive experience in government to government, non-governmental, academic and military multilateral co-operation throughout the OSCE region.
