Open call for submissions on the United Nations Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy


In 2023, the General Assembly of the United Nations will undertake the 8th biennial review of the United Nations Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy (A/RES/60/288), during which it will consider providing updated guidance related to the Strategy.

In preparation for this review, the Secretary-General, as mandated by paragraph 118 of resolution 75/291, will submit to the General Assembly a report on progress made in the implementation of the Strategy, including suggestions for its future implementation by the United Nations system, as well as on progress made in the implementation of the aforementioned resolution.

This report will also include the Secretary-General’s assessment of “the need to further enhance the integration of the rule of law, human rights and gender, as cross-cutting elements of the Strategy, in the counter-terrorism efforts of the United Nations system in order to strengthen their effectiveness, including the need for internal advisory or monitoring and evaluation capacity in this regard”, as called upon by the General Assembly in operative paragraph 86 of resolution 75/291.

In preparation for the Secretary-General’s report, the United Nations Office of Counter-Terrorism invites interested stakeholders, including civil society organizations, as well as international and other organizations with no standing invitation to participate as observers in the sessions and the work of the General Assembly, to share their views by responding to a questionnaire by 31 October 2022 (submissions before the deadline are encouraged). Updates on activities related to the implementation of the Strategy may cover progress made since January 2021.
