The United Nations Office of Counter-Terrorism was established through the adoption of General Assembly resolution 71/291 on 15 June 2017. Vladimir Ivanovich Voronkov was appointed as Under-Secretary-General of the Office on 21 June 2017.
The Counter-Terrorism Implementation Task Force – established by the Secretary-General in 2005 and endorsed by the General Assembly in 2006 - works to enhance coordination and coherence of UN counter-terrorism efforts.
Established in the wake of the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001 by Security Council resolution 1373, the Counter-Terrorism Committee works to bolster the ability of UN Member States to prevent terrorist acts, both within their borders and across regions.
Established in 1999 by Security Council resolution 1267, the Committee oversees implementation of sanctions concerning ISIL (Da'esh), Al-Qaida and associated individuals groups undertakings and entities.
By its resolution 1540(2004), the Security Council urged Member States to take effective measures to combat the proliferation of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons and to adopt and enforce laws to prohibit non-State actors from using such weapons, in particular for terrorist purposes. Security Council’s 1540 Committee provides technical assistance to Member States in this endeavour.
The TBP's mandate is to provide counter-terrorism legal technical assistance to Member States.
