Chapter Summary

This chapter is devoted to the specific criminalisation of offences related to a terrorist group that was triggered by the EU Framework Decision. It begins with a general overview of the duty in Article 2 to criminalise such acts, and studies the variety of responses from the states. The chapter analyses the different elements of Article 2 successively, along with their implementation in those states that have specifically criminalised offences relating to a terrorist group. It examines the definition of a terrorist group and continues with an analysis of the first and most general of the two offences, namely participation in the activities of a terrorist group. The chapter also analyses offence of directing a terrorist group. It focuses on the complementary criminalisation of attempts aiding and abetting and incitement which is (with the exception of attempts) provided for in Article 4 of the Framework Decision.

Keywords: Article 2; Article 4; criminalisation of offences; EU Framework Decision; terrorist group
