Committee's outline and faculties

The Counter-Terrorism Committee (CTC) finds its mission and origin after one of the most devastating terrorist attacks in the history of the United States of America perpetrated by the extremist group Al-Qaeda on September 11, 2001, an event that left massive damage to the country’s population and infrastructure. After condemning the attack, the United Nations recognized the necessity for an anti-terrorist power. The CTC was established under Security Council Resolution 1373 under Chapter VII, 2001, and became fully operational in 2005. The commitment of the Member States includes obligations that follow strategies for countering-terrorist support, such as economic interventions in any investigation of an individual or a group. The committee supports and stands for the cooperation to vanish terrorist powers by the observation between the members, including visiting each constituent to analyze the obligations that have been followed.
