The UN and Terrorism : A Study of the International Community’s Policy After the Cold War (English)
Abstract [en]

The United Nations has a responsibility to combat acts of international terrorism, as they constitute a threat to international peace and security. In spite of this, there exists no generally accepted definition of the phenomenom within the UN. By examining resolutions on terrorism, this thesis aims to evaluate the UN’s policy on terrorism since the end of the cold war until 2003. The results show that the UN’s attitude towards terrorism eversince the end of the cold war has been condemning, but that the the events of September 11th 2001 has contributed to an even more firm approach to the problem. Furthermore, it can be established that before September 11th 2001, the UN acted in response to states being responsible for acts of terror. After that date the UN has had to deal with terrorism committed by unknown actors that don’t have any governmental connection.
