In our memory: 9/11



The attacks of September 11th were intended to break our spirit. Instead we have emerged stronger and more unified. We feel renewed devotion to the principles of political, economic and religious freedom, the rule of law and respect for human life. We are more determined than ever to live our lives in freedom.” — Rudolph W. Giuliani


As the world remembers one of the saddest days in human history, marking the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, we would like to share with you the reaction of the international community in such a horrific day.

From that point and on, international relations shifted and international law opened its gates to a new era of regulation: fight against terrorism.

Cornerstone of this determination, stands the Resolution we echo today, which clearly states the international community´s readiness to respond and combat all forms of terrorism.

Last night President Barack Obama´s address on the US strategy against ISIS (also known as ISIL or IS) is a reminder of the validity of such resolve, yet many questions and legal loopholes still remain unsolved.

As part of our respects, and as a highlight of our commitment to the dissemination and promotion of International Law among students, the present note intents to fulfill the role of a remembrance of those who lost their lives in the tragic events of 9/11.


With our greatest respect,

Colombian International Law Students Association
