Chapter Summary

Terrorism as violent crime may, under certain circumstances, fulfil the criteria of crimes against humanity, but the existing anti-terrorist regulations do not distinguish between widespread and systematic terrorist acts, on the one hand, and isolated incidents, on the other. An important feature of terrorist financing - or incitement, recruitment, training for terrorism, direction of or participation in a terrorist group, or criminal transport of items which contribute to the design or manufacture of prohibited weapons - is that the criminal act has been separated from the harmful result. The Terrorist Financing Convention redefined the international law of terrorist crimes by including in its ambit non-violent and victimless offences that are related to terrorist violence only by way of criminal intent. The law of terrorist crimes seems to be a heterogeneous category, as there is no common threshold for defining all the acts that are commonly called acts of terrorism.

Keywords: anti-terrorist conventions; international criminal law; terrorist financing convention
