The handbook was developed within the Global Programme on Security of Major Sporting Events and Promotion of Sports and Its Values as a Tool to Prevent Violent Extremism (Global Sports Programme). Along with the Guide on the Security of Major Sporting Events – Promoting Sustainable Security and Legacies (Security Guide), which is aimed at protecting major sporting events (MSEs) for the common good of the international community, this handbook is one of two major publications within the Global Sports Programme aimed at preventing violent extremism (PVE). While the Guide for Policymakers for the Use of Sport for the Prevention of Violent Extremism (PVE Guide) is directed at policymakers and offers guidance on developing policies that utilize sport as a tool for PVE, this handbook is directed at assisting organizers of MSEs in leveraging these events to contribute to PVE.
The Global Sports Programme is led by the United Nations Office of Counter-Terrorism (UNOCT) in partnership with the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC), the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI), and the International Centre for Sport Security (ICSS), in consultation with the United Nations (UN) Counter-Terrorism Committee Executive Directorate (CTED) as well as other UN entities and INTERPOL.
