Chapter Summary

The open-ended mandate of the Counter-Terrorism Committee (CTC), extensive and on-going reporting requirements, coordination of technical assistance and the establishment of an executive directorate for the Committee - the CTED - are all novel features previously unknown to the subsidiary organs of the Security Council, and powerful tools in mainstreaming counter-terrorism policies. There is little doubt about the existence of an obligation on states to prevent and suppress terrorist activities in their territory. From the point of view of state responsibility, the most intriguing of the UN Security Council's actions against international terrorism has undoubtedly been the adoption of resolution 1368 on 12 September 2001, condemning "unequivocally" and "in the strongest terms" the horrifying attacks that had taken place the day before.
