Chapter Summary

The fall of the Russian-Soviet empire and communist regimes in Eastern Europe paved the way towards a single world where market economy principles and the dogmas of liberalisation, competition and deregulation appear to have gained universal currency. Terrorists have discovered how to use globalisation in a depraved, diabolical way; they appear to have a strategy for making the most of the opportunities globalization can offer, a strategy which democratic governments often lack. Ethical, to prevent the legitimate and necessary reaction to terrorism from being used as the pretext to derogate from, or not respect, fundamental rights and freedoms, thereby ceding moral ground to the terrorists and helping them to gain support. The author proposed some Principles concerning the obligations of States to prevent and repress international terrorist acts which appeared in the book The Legal Aspects of International Terrorism published in 1989 by Martinus Nijhoff.
