  1. Centrum proti terorismu a hybridním hrozbám
  2. Centre Against Terrorism and Hybrid Threats

What is the unit called?
Centre against Terrorism and Hybrid Threats (Centrum proti terorismu a hybridním hrozbám).

Why was it set up?
It was one of the recommendations that stemmed from the preliminary conclusions of the National Security Audit, which identified various types of hybrid threats, including terrorism and radicalisation and foreign disinformation campaigns, as serious internal security threats, and recommended that such units be set up within all relevant government bodies.

The Centre itself was set up following a declaration of the Minister of the Interior in May 2016, after the conclusion of the first phase of the National Security Audit.

The need to tackle new asymmetric or hybrid threats is also confirmed by the government-approved National Security Strategy of the Czech Republic.

When will the unit start operating?
On 1 January 2017.

Why is it at the Ministry of the Interior?
This is because questions pertaining to internal security, regardless of the methods and the context in which they occur, legally fall within the responsibility of the Ministry of the Interior. Therefore in legal terms, there is no difference between classical nation-wide threats (such as former political terrorism) and threats that fall within the context of current hybrid campaigns (such as the current soft target terrorist attacks coupled with Islamist propaganda spread via social media).

Is this a new institution?
No. The unit was formed within an existing department using the current budget of the Ministry of the Interior.

What does the Centre do?
It is essentially a specialised analytical, conceptual, and communications unit. Given the competencies of the Ministry of the Interior, the Centre not only monitors threats directly related to internal security, which implies a broad array of threats and potential incidents relative to terrorism, soft target attacks, security aspects of migration, extremism, public gatherings, violation of public order and different types of crimes, but also disinformation campaigns related to internal security. Based on its monitoring work, the Centre evaluates detected challenges and comes up with proposals for operational and legislative solutions that it also implements where needed. It also disseminates information and spreads awareness about the given issues among the general and professional public.

What the Centre is not and what it will not do:

  • The Centre is neither a new law enforcement agency, nor an intelligence service.
  • The Centre does not have a button for “switching off the internet”.
  • The Centre does not force the “truth” on anyone, or censor media content. It does not remove content from the internet or other (printed) media.
  • It works primarily with open sources available to all and openly communicates with civil society, the media, and other subjects.
  • The Centre does not have the authority, nor will it “lock anyone up”, “interrogate anyone”, or conduct any proceedings with anyone.
  • The Centre does not spread any kind of propaganda but only expertise relating to the field of internal security, and is modelled on similar strategic communication teams that already exist in Baltic countries or in the United Kingdom.
  • The Centre, among others informs about serious cases of disinformation and provides expert opinions to the public as well as to government institutions. These opinions, as those of a government institution, will be based on the constitutional order of the Czech Republic.
