HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL ADVISORY COMMITTEE

Negative effects of terrorism on the enjoyment of human rights

In March 2017, the Human Rights Council adopted resolution A/HRC/RES/34/8, wherein it requests the Advisory Committee to conduct a study and prepare a report on the negative effects of terrorism on the enjoyment of all human rights and fundamental freedoms, with a particular focus on economic, social and cultural rights, including as a result of diverting foreign direct investment, reducing capital inflows, destroying infrastructure, limiting foreign trade, disturbing financial markets, negatively affecting certain economic sectors and impeding economic growth, and to recommend actions to Governments, United Nations human rights mechanisms, regional and international organizations and civil society organizations in this regard. The Committee is requested to present the report to the Council for consideration at its thirty-ninth session (September 2018).

At its nineteenth session, the Committee will hold discussions on this topic and will establish a drafting group for the preparation of the above-mentioned report.
