Civil society and counter-terrorism: The next 20 years
This event marks the twentieth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the adoption of UN Security Council Resolution 1373, which laid the foundations of the global counter-terrorism architecture. The proliferation of counter-terrorism and security laws have had a profound impact on development, civic space, humanitarian action and peacebuilding in the last 20 years.
A diverse line-up of speakers will:
- reflect on these impacts
- explore how civil society has responded
- discuss what more needs to change following the renegotiation of the UN Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy earlier this year to protect civil society and human rights and facilitate humanitarian action and peacebuilding.
The event will be chaired by Poonam Joshi from Global Dialogue and the Funders Initiative for Civil Society, and the keynote speaker will be Fionnuala Ní Aoláin, the UN Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms while countering terrorism.
The event is organised by Bond alongside the Sanctions and Counter-Terrorism Group, the Conflict Policy Group, and the Civic Space Group.
This webinar will run from 13:00 - 15:00 British Summer Time (UTC +1), with a short break at 13:55.
