Chapter Summary

The basic premise of Resolution 1373 is that international terrorism constitutes a threat that triggers the Council's powers under Chapter VII. This chapter first describes the concept of international terrorism on which the Resolution is based. Thereafter, its measures are explored. The measures contained in Resolution 1373 reflect the Security Council's comprehensive approach to the threat of international terrorism by being addressed to all states rather than to states or groups involved in the 11 September attacks. In order to understand the Resolution as an integrated whole, all measures are analysed together, including measures that do not relate to criminal law and measures that are not intended to be binding under Chapter VII. Following this survey, the extraordinary normative nature of the Resolution, its legislative character, is explained more thoroughly. Based on the understanding of the Resolution established hitherto, its legal basis under the UN Charter is discussed.
