An Action Agenda for Enhancing the United Nations Program on Counter-Terrorism

Action Agenda

September 2004 – This report is one of the first analytical assessments of the work of the United Nations Counter-terrorism Committee, which was created by the Security Council in September 2001. It analyzes the changing responsiveness of member states to the reporting requirements of the resolution. It also explores trends that have led many members to call for strengthening the committee’s institutional capacity to respond to member requests for reporting assistance and for increased training in the procedures called for by SCR 1373 and international treaties.

The report also examines the lack of coordination that has developed between the UN’s existing 1267 committee that deals with al-Qaida/the Taliban and the Counter-terrorism Committee.
