The United Nations Security Council maintains a list of individuals and entities associated with the Taliban. This ‘Al-Qaida list’ is now used as a pre-emptive legal weapon to disrupt global terrorist networks and their supporters worldwide. Gavin Sullivan critically examines the UN’s Al-Quada counterterrorism listing regime as a novel form of global security law. He shows how the list works as an ordering device to render the uncertain threats of global terrorism amenable to legal intervention.
