Chapter Summary

This chapter provides an in-depth analysis of the international obligations to criminalise certain acts related to terrorism and their implementation in national law. The subject of the chapter is the core crime. Of the two international instruments highlighted in the chapter, Resolution 1373 does little to define the core crime: the perpetration of 'a terrorist act'.The EU Framework Decision, on the other hand, starts with a thorough definition of 'terrorist offences' and relates all the supplementary regulations to this definition. Thus, the Framework Decision has been the focus of almost exclusive attention in the national efforts to define the core crime. For this reason, the chapter focuses primarily on the Framework Decision and its national counterparts. It discusses the regulation of the level of penalties in the Framework Decision and national legislation and finally draws some conclusions.

Keywords: core crime; EU Framework Decision; national law; Resolution 1373; terrorist offences
