Implementation of the UN Global Counterterrorism Strategy

42nd Conference on the United Nations of the Next Decade
Conference Report
August 2007

What is the status of global counterterrorism efforts? This conference report summarizes the results of five days of intense discussion among assembled officials and experts from the United Nations, regional organizations, national governments, think tanks, and nongovernmental organizations on June 8-13, at St. Michaels, Maryland.

The discussions focused on the United Nations Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy, adopted by the UN General Assembly on September 8, 2006 (General Assembly Resolution 60/288). This event marked the first time member states agreed to a comprehensive, global, strategic framework on counterterrorism since the issue came before the League of Nations in 1934. The strategy aims to bring all the counterterrorism activities of the United Nations system into a common framework, putting special emphasis on the Security Council's Counter-Terrorism Executive Directorate and the Secretariat's Counter-Terrorism Implementation Task Force. The GA is scheduled to review progress on the strategy in September of 2008, adding additional urgency and incentive for UN agencies, member states, and other actors to back up the resolution with concrete counterterrorism efforts at the global level.
