Virtual Civil Society Roundtable Discussion


The UN Security Council: Assessing Twenty Years of Counterterrorism

 

December 15, 2021


This virtual roundtable brought together key civil society stakeholders to identify areas of impact as well as successes and challenges in UN Security Council efforts to address terrorist and violent extremist threats over the past two decades. The discussion was led by Naureen Chowdhury Fink, Executive Director of The Soufan Center; Alistair Millar, President of the Fourth Freedom Forum; and Eric Rosand, Visiting Senior Fellow of The Soufan Center.

The participants’ contributions will help inform the SFI project’s ongoing research as it looks to develop policy-relevant recommendations aimed at ensuring an effective and sustainable UN Security Council approach to counterterrorism challenges going forward. These recommendations, be informed by a series of workshops and consultation with a variety of stakeholders over the the past year, will be presented in September 2022 alongside the United Nations General Assembly in New York.
