The International System in a Deadlock: International Organisations and Global Terrorism (ISFRound)

Terrorism, which is a global threat beyond national borders, constitutes one of the biggest obstacles to maintaining international peace and stability. While violent terrorist acts target not only a country, its citizens or a segment of society, but also all humanity, the illegal ways that terrorist organizations resort to in order to maintain their existence require the joint struggle of states and global organizations against terrorism.  In other words, the global dimension of terrorism imposes certain duties and responsibilities on international and regional organizations in the fight against terrorism.

In addition to global terrorism, building resistance against today's global challenges such as climate crisis, wars, conflicts, epidemics, migration and poverty and reducing their negative effects is one of the most important agenda items of the international community. The current structure of the international system and the role played by international organizations in solving these challenges continue to be questioned. At the roundtable meeting to be held in this regard, international strategies and cooperation opportunities to be implemented with the awareness of common responsibility against global terrorism that threatens international peace and trust will be discussed. Reforms to be implemented in order to overcome the crisis in the international system and to build a more effective international society will be also brought to the agenda in the session.
