Chapter Summary

Many states have long had provisions intended to discourage terrorism through criminalisation and effective prosecution. The terrorist attacks in the USA on 11 September 2001, and subsequent attacks in other countries, have reinforced the states' determination to overcome defects in previous attempts at regulation and introduce more effective counter-terrorism legislation. This is a prime example of how the interaction between international institutions and national authorities may contribute to the development of a definition of a legal concept of crucial importance at the global as well as the regional and national levels. The International Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism, adopted by the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in 1999, is also of particular interest. During the last few years, terrorism has been one of the subjects that international politics has focused on most closely.
