The Counter-Terrorism Committee proposes to hold an open briefing to highlight the successful proceedings and outcomes of its recent Special Meeting on countering the use of new and emerging technologies for terrorist purposes, which was held in India on 28-29 October 2022.
The open briefing will highlight the three significant areas focused on during the Special Meeting in which emerging technologies are experiencing rapid development, growing use by Member States for security and counter-terrorism purposes, and an increasing threat of use for terrorist purposes: (i) the Internet, social media, and related online spaces; (ii) new payment technologies and fundraising methods; and (iii) unmanned aerial systems (UAS). The open briefing will also give overarching considerations necessary in countering the use of new and emerging technologies for terrorist purposes to include human rights, the role of civil society, one UN global programming, and honoring the victims of terrorism.
