Chapter Summary

Terrorism has been on the contemporary international scene for a long time now, although perhaps it is only now that greater effort is being poured into preventing and combating the perpetration of terrorist acts from the normative perspective. From the international law perspective we have also seen renewed interest in the issue reflected, in particular, in the many norms, many of them in the form of conventions which are being adopted in this area and in the host of initiatives aimed at regulating each and every one of the characteristic features of terrorism. Obviously counter-terrorism may affect human rights issues on at least two counts: Firstly, the perpetration of terrorist acts is certainly an attack on the most basic human rights and secondly, measures aimed at preventing, combating and suppressing terrorism must not under any circumstances violate those rights.
