Chapter Summary

In the United Nations the debate originated in the now extinct Commission on Human Rights and the Sub-Commission for the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights in the 1990s , and the first General Assembly resolutions on the subject also began to appear at that time. Initially, legal opinion considered that human rights placed limits on state counter-terrorism measures, but more recently it has also started to consider that terrorist acts conflict with human rights, or rather they violate human rights. In compliance with UN Security Council Resolution 1373 (2001) and guidelines and recommendations adopted by various international organs, some States have adopted anti-terrorist measures. This chapter focuses on three human rights treaties: The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights of 1966; the European Convention on Human Rights of 1950 and the American Convention on Human Rights of 1969.
