This chapter assesses the bottlenecks and pitfalls identifiable in the counterterrorism system of the UN, as well as in the international legal system. The success rate of any possible suggestions for improving these measures will depend on evolution geopolitics and the power structures as we know them today. Thus, before anything else, the scenarios of different developments in geopolitics are discussed. Finally, some proposals for improving the current system are made, thereby taking into account the circumstances necessary to make that happen.
