Chapter Summary

Terrorism, by being the absolute negation of the values which sustain human dignity only serves to aggravate conflict and make finding a solution even more difficult. In an international space where frontiers are becoming increasingly vague, protecting security must be a shared task which makes it essential to intensify bilateral and multilateral international cooperation to guarantee an integral fight against terrorism. Unrestricted respect for human rights must therefore be a fundamental part of all antiterrorist strategies and this involves respecting the full scope of human rights or those rights which have not been legitimately suspended. It is worth underlining the fact that these international obligations do not create any general exception for terrorism but establish an interrelated, mutually reinforced scheme of protection for human rights which State responses to terrorism must conform to.
