Unformatted text preview: Resolution 1373 W.J.M. Aerdts 0243752 November 2008 Supervisor: G.G. de Valk 2 Preface During my internship at the Permanent Mission of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to the United Nations I was assisting the attaché who was responsible for all legal matters. Among others, we dealt with the counter-terrorism efforts of the United Nations, and more specifically, the efforts of the United Nations Security Council. After this internship I obtained a Master degree in International Public Law. While my internship taught me countering terrorism in practice, the LL.M. program offered me the legal references of counter-terrorism. Stimulated by, and with the consent of, Giliam de Valk, I used my first thesis * as a basis for this thesis. With this thesis I hope to integrate the historical aspects of terrorism with the legal implications. Furthermore, I would not only like to give a historical and legal view on countering terrorism by the United Nations, but also to give a more political perspective on the implementation of the United Nations counter-terrorism measures. I would like to thank my grandparents for providing me with the space and possibility to write this thesis in their house, surrounded by their love and support. To end, I would like to thank Giliam for supervising me while writing this thesis.
