Panelist in Session 5: Rehabilitation, assistance and support

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


Session's subject description: Assistance and support refer to the provision of material, medical, psychological, and social assistance and rehabilitation, as well as related services, to victims of terrorism. The Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy details the need to provide capacity-building support to Member States to assist them in protecting and promoting the rights of victims of terrorism. This has been repeatedly reaffirmed in resolutions and reports, most recently in General Assembly resolution 73/305 on the “Enhancement of International Cooperation to Assist Victims of Terrorism” (A/RES/73/305). These sessions explored the multi- and inter-disciplinary measures required to secure a holistic treatment for victims from the immediate aftermath of an attack to the longer term. These sessions also discussed best practices in the development of national comprehensive assistance plans as called for in General Assembly resolution 73/305.
