This module is a resource for lecturers


This Module introduces students to the principal regional and multilateral organizations engaged in global counter-terrorism efforts, which have a pivotal role to play in terms of furthering the implementation of the UN Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy objectives. As such, the Module lays an important analytical and conceptual foundation for subsequent Modules (especially Modules 7-14), which examine both international as well as regional and multilateral frameworks and approaches to specific aspects of counter-terrorism. This enables the University Module Series as a whole to have a strong comparative element, allowing students to become familiar with not only their own, but also other regional approaches and systems, thereby encouraging them to compare and contrast the strengths and weaknesses of different regional as well as international approaches.

Learning outcomes

  • Understand the role of regional organizations and instruments, and differences in their approaches when countering terrorism.
  • Examine the strengths and weaknesses of regional human rights approaches (key instruments as well as mechanisms).
  • Encourage students to develop basic comparative research and analytic skills.
