Weekly Security Readings

8 Jul 2020

On 28 March 2019, the Security Council adopted resolution 2462 (2019), which consolidates the Council’s previous resolutions on the counter-financing of terrorism; underscores the central role of the United Nations, in particular the Council, in the fight against terrorism; and calls for new measures directed at preventing and suppressing terrorism financing. The adoption of the resolution reflects the Council’s continued determination to deprive terrorists of funds, other financial assets and economic resources, as well as to deny them access to the financial system and to other economic sectors that are vulnerable to terrorism financing. Based on responses from 112 Member States, the report provides an overview of measures, good practices and challenges encountered by Member States in their implementation of international counter-financing of terrorism standards.

The risk of a resumption of violence in Africa’s post-conflict countries will be significantly greater if states do not set in place inclusive, youth-focused policies and frameworks during the transition from conflict to peace. National youth policies in states involved in Africa’s Post-Conflict, Reconstruction and Development (PCRD) programmes are fundamental to the achievement of sustainable peace.
