Chapter Summary

This chapter explains whether actions by military forces, 'freedom fighters', 'resistance movements' and demonstrators are excluded from or covered by the global, regional and national terrorism legislation. It starts with an attempt to do just that, through an analysis of the Resolution in light of the general discussion at the level of international law. This analysis also forms a useful background for the discussion of the parallel questions in the interpretation of the EU Framework Decision. When turning to the national legislation that implements the UN and EU obligations, the discourses at the global and regional levels reemerge in a different context, and an analysis of the national debates leading up to the adoption of the new legislation may provide valuable guidance on the interpretation of the domestic rules in question.

Keywords: demonstrators; EU Framework Decision; freedom fighters; military forces; national terrorism; resistance movements; Resolution 1373
