Chapter Summary

A shift of perception is underway with regard to terrorist crimes. New pro-active anti-terrorist criminalisations target different kinds of material support to terrorism. In the area of financial sanctions, a new form of international quasi-criminal accountability has been created. In the present study, this paradigm shift has been studied from two perspectives. The main focus has been on the question of the broadening of individual and state responsibility for terrorist acts and terrorism-related activities to include increasingly indirect contributions to crime. In the international law and action against terrorism, much attention has been directed recently at the conditions that are 'conducive to terrorism'. The difference between the four established core crimes, on the one hand, and terrorist crimes, on the other, is often taken for granted, if only because of the exclusion of terrorism from the jurisdiction ratione materiae of international jurisdictions.
