Anti-Terror Measures – UN

International conventions related to terrorism 

Terrorism has been on the international agenda since 1934, when the League of Nations, predecessor of the United Nations, began the elaboration of a convention for the prevention and punishment of terrorism.[4] Although the Convention was eventually adopted in 1937, it never came into force.

Today, there are 15 counter-terrorism international conventions in force. They were developed under the auspices of the United Nations and its specialized agencies and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). Moreover, on 8 September 2006, the UN General Assembly adopted a “Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy”.[5]

Conventions open to all states

A 16th international convention, a proposed Comprehensive Convention on International Terrorism, is currently under negotiations.
