Description
International Cooperation in the Fight Against Terrorism

In the wake of 9-11, the United Nations Security Council approved its most ambitious and comprehensive resolution aimed at dealing with the threat of terrorism (resolution 1373).

Can the United Nations wage an effective battle against a threat that still defies definition in the eyes of the international community? Are governments receiving the legal and technical instruments they need to protect their citizens from terrorist attacks? How can "counter-terrorism capacity" be built in those
countries that can't afford it?

These are some of the issues discussed in this edition of World Chronicle with guest Javier Rupérez, the head of the UN's Counter-Terrorism Executive Directorate.
