Committee of Experts on Terrorism

The Committee of Experts on Terrorism , or CODEXTER , is an inter-governmental committee of experts of the Council of Europe . [1]

It was founded in 2003 to replace the Multidisciplinary Group on International Action Against Terrorism (GMT). [2]

One of the main functions of the organization is to make profiles of each member’s legislative and institutional counter-terrorism plans. [3] These profiles are short reports on member states‘ counter-terrorism measures. [4]


Amnesty International HAS urged CODEXTER to delete the last paragraph of the organization’s Preamble, qui Attempts to define terrorism , as it „does not Sufficiently Distinguish entre unlawful acts and legitimate, non-violent opposition to the non-action or action of states“ [5 ]
