Geneva Workshop

The UN Security Council: Assessing Twenty Years of Counterterrorism

Multi-Stakeholder Perspectives from “International Geneva”


April 6 – 7, 2022

SFI, in cooperation with the Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP), hosted a workshop which convened a range of stakeholders from across “International Geneva”, including representatives from member states, the United Nations, researchers, and civil society.

The purpose was to exchange views on the impact of the United Nations Security Council’s counterterrorism activities over the past 20 years, with a particular focus on how such activities have affected development, humanitarian action, and human rights, and elicit recommendations for the future direction of the Security Council’s counterterrorism efforts.

These roundtables will inform the SFI’s final report, which will be presented during the opening of the 77th United Nations General Assembly in New York in September.
