Description: This report, published by the Century Foundation, takes a critical look at UN Security Council efforts to assume the leading role among international organizations involved in counterterrorism. It enumerates a series of structural changes that could strengthen Security Council–led efforts in the short term but argues that, over the long term, a new international body dedicated to counterterrorism may be needed. The report considers the merits of different models for such a body and outlines the essential characteristics such an entity would require to succeed.
