Chapter Summary

The idea of addressing the subject of terrorism in an EU framework decision was recommended by the European Parliament already on 5 September 2001, and it was thus not a direct result of the terrorist attacks in the USA. This chapter provides a general introduction to the Framework Decision. It starts with an analysis of the basic concepts used in the instrument, e.g. 'terrorism' and 'terrorist offences'. Thereafter, a summary account of the measures will be given, focusing on the complementarity and interaction of the measures that make the Framework Decision a whole. The chapter discusses the Framework Decision's legal basis, as well as its legislative character. Compared with Resolution 1373, the measures of the Framework Decision are more concentrated on the area of criminal law. The first four articles contain obligations to criminalise terrorist offences and other offences relating to terrorism.

Keywords: criminal law; EU framework decision; Resolution 1373; terrorist attacks
