Chapter Summary

The concept of 'international criminal law' (ICL) as a special regime has only been used in the recent decades and even then to denote a somewhat ambiguous area of international regulation. This chapter attempts to shed light on the aspect of the perception and characterisation of terrorism as an international crime. It discusses terrorism against the background of the codification of the core crimes. The International Military Tribunals in Nuremberg (IMT) considered terrorist policies in the context of the launching of a war of aggression and, notably, regarded terrorist methods as a tool to pursue and promote the aim of an aggressive war. The chapter concludes that international jurisprudence has been concerned with terrorism as a war crime as well as with policies of terror as an aspect of other crimes.

Keywords: core crimes; international criminal law (ICL); international jurisprudence; international military tribunals in Nuremberg (IMT); terrorist crimes
