The United Nations' efforts to combat terrorism : A qualitative study about the United Nations' measures to combat IS from a perspective of human rights (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to analyze how the United Nations as an organization has acted to combat IS between 2010 and 2015 from a perspective of human rights, and why the UN has not taken further action in this area. The second question is answered through three different perspectives: organizational theory, realism and liberalism and feminism. The essay is a case study, and it is based on primary sources such as literature and official websites concerning the UN and its work to combat terrorism. I have concluded that the UN has made extensive efforts to combat IS, through strategies, resolutions, institutions and sanctions. However, these efforts have sometimes represented violations of human rights and international law, which should form the basis for the UN's work against terrorism. The three perspectives provide different answers concerning why the UN has not made even more efforts to combat IS. The UN organization as a whole is emphasized, as well as the international system and male domination in the political arena.
