The various anti-terrorist conventions and protocols are introduced in this paper. In its resolution 1373 (2001) of 28 September 2001, the Security Council declared that “acts, methods and practices of terrorism [were] contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations [and] that knowingly financing, planning and inciting terrorist acts [were] also contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations” (para. 5). In the same resolution, the Security Council decided that all Member States should “take the necessary steps to prevent the commission of terrorist acts” (para. 2 (b)). The Council also decided to establish a Committee to monitor implementation of that resolution.
