The Global Politics of Counter-Terrorism

Episode 1: The Impact of Great Power Politics on the United Nation's Counter-Terrorism Strategy with Naureen Fink

In our first episode, we speak with Naureen Fink, the executive director for The Soufan Center, who previously worked as a Senior Policy Advisor on Counterterrorism and Sanctions at the United Kingdom’s Mission to the United Nations.

Naureen Fink discusses how the shift in global power dynamics has changed the UN’s CT agenda, the fragmentation of the international community, how international organisations can continue to advance Human Rights and Rule of Law compliance and the future role for European values within the UN. Interviewing her is Alexander von Rosenbach, ICCT’s business manager.
