Conducting hybrid assessment visits to some Member States pro tempore

On 19 November 2020, the Counter-Terrorism Committee adopted hybrid assessment visits to some Member States, pro tempore, so that the Committee and the Counter-Terrorism Committee Executive Directorate (CTED) can, to the extent possible, carry on one of the core functions entrusted to them by the Security Council. Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting restrictions imposed by the United Nations, all scheduled or planned assessment visits have been postponed since March 2020. It currently remains unclear when CTED will be able to resume conducting on-site assessment visits in their full physical form on the Committee’s behalf. Conducting hybrid visits will not alter the Committee’s established physical assessment process, nor will be considered a precedent for any other future assessment visits under normal situations, the aim being to enable CTED to continue to monitor, facilitate and promote, on the Committee’s behalf, Member States’ efforts to implement the relevant Council resolutions.
