Counterterrorism, Rules of Engagement and International Order in a UN context

12. december 2017 kl. 8.30 - 13.30 CET

– Views from Chinese and Danish Defence


Is the UN and its multilateral set-up able to contribute to manage the challenges that stem from terrorist threats? From different interpretations of fundamental rules in the UN system, such as the UN Charter and the Law of the Sea? And the challenges from the role of the UN in managing a changing world order?

At this conference, four officers from Danish defence and four officers from China’s Academy of Military Science will discuss these questions.

The officers present their views on:

  • The UN operation in Mali
  • Chinese and Danish contributions to anti-terror and UN operations
  • To what extent counterterrorist operations will form part of UN operations in future
  • The role of rules of engagement and confidence-building measures in promoting peace and stability in the South China Sea and the Baltic Sea
  • Turkey’s role in terrorist threats and international order in its near abroad 

The Academy of Military Science (AMS) is China’s primary military strategic institution. AMS advices China’s Central Military Commission, chaired by President Xi Jinping, about the role of the Chinese military in implementing China’s defence, security and foreign policy. AMS plays a main role in the publication of China’s defence white papers.

The latest one, published in January 2017, announces that China prioritizes expanding international cooperation on anti-terror operations in a UN context. This statement stresses the need to discuss the preconditions for expanding such cooperation with China’s international cooperation partners in defence, including Danish defence. 

Director of the Danish Foreign Policy Society Charlotte Flindt Pedersen will moderate one session.
