Chapter Summary

September 11, 2001 is undoubtedly a critical date for international counter-terrorism, although States were dealing with the issue long before that. The United Nations is responsible for a large part of the work and the Organisation is at the heart of most of the important collective measures which have been adopted in the fight against terrorism. This chapter discusses the role of the General Assembly and the Security Council in the matter, and attempts to highlight the contributions, the lacunae and the problematic issues. It discusses three controversial aspects of Security Council action to combat international terrorism. Firstly, there is the question of the Councils powers to adopt such measures and the limits on those powers; secondly, whether the measures are effective; and thirdly, how they affect human rights.
