This report presents the results of an assessment of the APEC Counter-Terrorism Working Group using data from sources like the APEC meeting database, as well as direct exchanges with the APEC Secretariat. 

The report draws simple conclusions based on descriptive statistics, or highlights cases where use of statistics (like averages) would be uninformative (for instance, due to very small sample size). The study found that: CTWG has all of its basic documents in place. All economies belong to the forum. Meeting attendance is strong, averaging just over 72% of the total number of member economies. Participation by female delegates is weak, however: they account for, on average, only around 23% of the total number of delegates at recent CTWG meetings.
