Countering extremism and terrorism

Centre for Counter-Terrorism Coordination

​​​​​​​​​​​​The Centre for Counter-Terrorism Coordination (the CCTC) oversees all efforts to prevent and counter terrorism in Australia. It advises on the full spectrum of counter-terrorism issues from challenging extremist ideologies through to effective response and recovery in the event of a terrorist attack.

The CCTC also provides secretariat support to the Commonwealth Counter-Terrorism Coordinator for important intergovernmental forums, including the Australia-New Zealand Counter-Terrorism Committee.

On 20 December 2017, the Department of Home Affairs, and the wider portfolio, was officially stood up. The CCTC transferred from the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet to the Department of Home Affairs.
