Counter terrorism committee

The UN Counter Terrorism Committee - CTC was established by Security Council resolution 1373 after the September 11th attacks. It consists of all fifteen members of the Security Council and is responsible for ensuring that all States follow the resolution. The Committee also works to increase the capacity of States to fight terrorism.

According to Resolution 1373, States must

  • deny all forms of financial support for terrorist groups.
  • prevent the terrorists from acquiring safe havens or subsistence.
  • cooperate with governments in the apprehension of terrorists.
  • create domestic laws that criminalize terrorism.
  • participate in the relevant anti-terrorism conventions.

All States that comply with the CTC are obliged to report to the Committee about their implementation of the resolution.
