United Nations Office of counter-terrorism


Terrorism in Africa with special emphasis on the Al -Shabaab insurgency

Established as a key reform by the United Nations, the Office of Counter-Terrorism strengthens the UN's ability to work towards its goal of abolishing global terrorist activity. UNOCT improves visibility, advocacy and resource mobilisation to the same end. At DSMUN this year, we will deliberate on the causes of the Al-Shabaab insurgency and find solutions to achieve stability and peace in Africa. From attacking foreign military forces to executing ambushes and assaults, Al-Shabaab carries out mass-casualty operations in several nations and hence delegates need to propose resolutions that work towards dismantling the very grounds of the organisation. It is essential to delve into the social, economic and political injustice that leads to the creation of such extremist organisations, to prevent future generations from falling prey to the same. The Executive Board recognizes the difficulties faced by the people of Africa and calls upon delegates to rise to the challenge and establish a comprehensive yet sustainable framework that fosters lasting progress and enables a more peaceful future for the continent.
