The Partnership for Regional East Africa Counterterrorism (PREACT) is the U.S. government’s multi-year, multi-sector initiative to build the long-term capabilities of East African partners to contain, disrupt, and marginalize terrorist networks in the region. INL is a critical contributor to the PREACT strategy, which seeks to build strong civilian and security sector institutions, create durable capabilities, and address conditions contributing to the spread of violent extremism – efforts that are essential to enable host governments to take full ownership of the fight against terrorism. INL’s PREACT funds empower East African criminal justice institutions to confront complex challenges posed by cross-border terrorism. INL’s active PREACT partners include Kenya, Somalia, and Tanzania. Burundi, Comoros, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Rwanda, Seychelles, South Sudan, Sudan, and Uganda are also members of PREACT.
