Chapter Summary

This chapter provides an overview of the different counter-terrorism programs adopted by the Security Council. The Security Council, because of it primary responsibility within the UN system for maintaining international peace and security and its ability to impose obligations on all 191 UN Member States, was expected to play a leading and unique role in the global effort to combat terrorism. The chapter highlights what the author seems to be the substantive overlap between and among the different initiatives. Security Council Members are becoming increasingly aware of the substantive overlap between these two Committees and their staff bodies and the need to ensure full cooperation and coordination so as to minimize the duplication of efforts and maximize the limited UN resources available to address the terrorist threat. The chapter concludes with some suggestions on how both the UN and the global institutional counter-terrorism effort can be improved.
