ABSTRACT

Terrorism is one of the greatest threats of modern times. Following September 11, it has especially imposed great fear and concern around the world. This paper will discuss the fight against terrorism by the world’s largest organization, the United Nations, as the fight against this phenomenon has not proved successful by states individually. The fight against terrorism by the UN will be addressed by dealing with legal aspects including international legal mechanisms and instruments to combat terrorism. Additionally, this paper will encompass the UN approach and actions to be taken to prevent this threat which is becoming more and more disturbing. Especially following the terrorist attacks on the Twin Towers on September 11, more initiatives were prompted by international states and organizations led by the world’s largest organization to undertake concrete actions and international legal acts were consequently issued. The UN with its bodies, in addition to international conventions, has issued a large number of resolutions condemning terrorist actions that call for a united fight against this phenomenon. Therefore, the issues discussed above and the actions of the UN in this regard will be addressed in this paper. Actions and ways how these actions are to be undertaken by the organization itself, actions to be taken by states, as well as raising the issue of terrorism at a higher level than in the past.

Keywords: UN, Terrorism, International Conventions, Resolutions, Strategies.
