Chapter Summary

The perception of which crimes belong to the category of 'the most serious international crimes' tends to change with the shifts in how the most prominent dangers to the international community are evaluated. The relaxation of the requirement of state involvement in the core crimes that was brought about by the jurisprudence of the two ad hoc criminal tribunals in the 1990s and was to a certain extent solidified in the Rome Statute came too late to affect the definition of terrorism in the International Law Commission (ILC) Draft Code. The two traditions of state terrorism/crimes against humanity and anti-terrorist treaties are related to two different historical phases in the development of terrorism as a real-life phenomenon; 'international' terrorism as it appeared in the 1970s was very different from a 'reign of terror' built and maintained by a state.

Keywords: crimes against humanity; International Law Commission (ILC) Draft Code; international terrorism; Rome Statute; state terrorism
