The United Nations has mobilized all the means necessary to make the fight against terrorism a major concern of all States. The media coverage of the September 11 attacks on U.S. soil with Security Council resolution- 1373 has raised awareness that terrorism can strike at any time. However, at the heart of this struggle is a shortcoming: the lack of a universal definition of terrorism (Section 1). The international fight is against a phenomenon that has is not even defined, at present. No international instrument has effectively begun the task of definition. Meanwhile, anti-terrorism activities continue to flourish, and some violate human rights (Section 2). In the international community prepared to trample human rights in the name of counter-terrorism? Is there no way for the UN to reconcile respect for human rights and the fight against terrorism?
