Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses perspectives on international terrorism, hostage taking and kidnapping, effects of contemporary international obligations for combating the financing of terrorism on interstate cooperation in criminal matters, the crime of piracy, international maritime navigation and installations on the high seas, and international civil aviation. Articles 14 through 22 of the 1958 Geneva Convention on the High Seas and other articles of the 1982 U.N. Convention on the Law of the Sea crowned a number of efforts to arrive at an international conventional regulation of piracy. The basic rule on the territorial sea is that the warships and public vessels of the littoral state can interfere as they please with foreign ships, a right regulated in the Geneva Convention on the Territorial Sea and the Contiguous Zone. The Convention for the Suppression of Unlawful Acts against the Safety of Maritime Navigation has served as the model for later conventions.

Keywords: 1982 U.N. Convention; crimes; financing of terrorism; international terrorism; interstate cooperation; safety of maritime navigation; terror-violence
