Joint Response to the Latest Review of the UN’s Global Counterterrorism Strategy by UN Member States

July 16, 2018

In June 2018, the United Nations General Assembly passed Resolution 72/284 reviewing the United Nations Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy. In response to this review, Fair Trials co-signed a letter with Amnesty International, ARTICLE 19, Global Center for the Responsibility to Protect, Global Center on Cooperative Security, Human Rights Clinic (Columbia Law School), Human Rights Watch, International Center for Not-for-Profit Law (ICNL), International Commission of Jurists (ICJ), International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH), International Service for Human Rights (ISHR), Open Society Justice Initiative, Privacy International, Reprieve and Rights Watch UK.

The letter highlights that although the Counter-Terrorism Strategy affirms states' obligations to respect international law, including human rights, the reality of the implementation of counter terrorism measures globally present a serious threat to basic human rights, and that these threats are not adequately addressed by the review of the strategy.
