Virtual launch event for study on “The interrelationship between counter-terrorism frameworks and international humanitarian law”

Thursday, 20 January 2022 - 10:00am


On Thursday, 20 January, CTED will hold a virtual launch event to discuss its new study on The interrelationship between counter-terrorism frameworks and international humanitarian law” and ways to support Member States in their efforts to implement Security Council resolutions on counter-terrorism in compliance with international humanitarian law.

The study, prepared in accordance with Security Council resolution 2617 (2021), maps the references to international humanitarian law contained in Council resolutions addressing threats to international peace and security caused by terrorist acts. Based on that mapping, it explores (without seeking to provide an exhaustive analysis) two pertinent issues repeatedly addressed in the relevant resolutions: (i) the impact of counter-terrorism measures on humanitarian action carried out in armed conflict contexts in a manner consistent with international humanitarian law; and (ii) the linkages between terrorism and serious violations of international humanitarian law, with a view to promoting comprehensive accountability for terrorist conduct. 

The event will be held via Microsoft Teams.

Please RSVP by completing this form before 4 p.m. EST Wednesday, 19 January 2022.

For any questions, please contact Krisztina Huszti-Orban [].

The concept note and agenda are forthcoming.
