Scope
This workshop will address the role that global and regional institutions have been playing in antiterrorism both at present and in the past. In order to do so comprehensively, the workshop will assess not only current issues in international antiterrorism efforts but also look at the genesis of multilateral antiterrorism measures and regimes negotiated within the framework of international organisations (IOs). The objective is two-fold: First to see and analyse antiterrorism efforts put in place by international global and regional organisations and to assess the question of agency within these processes. Second, it will be investigated to what extent the implementation of these efforts both internationally and domestically posed problems of efficiency or caused conflicts of legal orders. International organisations are thus seen both as actors in their own rights as well as fora where states (and possibly other stakeholders) meet and negotiate relevant actions. There will be a set of core questions to be addressed (but the workshop will not be limited only to them):

  • What international antiterrorism efforts have been put in place by what IOs and for which reasons?
    • What were the driving/ halting forces and motives behind these efforts?
    • How were these efforts implemented?
    • What conflicts arose with other national or international policies and legal concepts (sovereignty and human rights, for instance)?
    • In which cases did multilateral cooperation work and why did it not in others?
    • What are the prospects for future international antiterrorism efforts, what roles can IOs play, and what lessons can be learnt from the past?

All are invited to both the Workshop and the Roundtable
