Chapter Summary

This chapter first provides some notes on how the threat to international peace and security concept has been shaped by Security Council practice and the gradual inclusion of terrorist acts into this category. It then considers the content and limits of the current configuration of the threat to peace caused by terrorist acts and some of the implications when Security Council adopts decisions under Chapter VII of the United Nations Charter. The chapter ends with some brief conclusions where the author reflects on some of the main issues dealt with here which are offered for inclusion in the open-ended, ongoing debate raised by the 7th Symposium of International Humanitarian Law on the International Law Dimension of Terrorism.
