Chapter Summary

The international law of terrorism has undergone a significant, if largely unnoticed, change in recent years. This chapter provides an overview of the book, which focuses on how international law has developed in recent years in face of the new kind of terrorist threat. As far as individual criminal responsibility is concerned, the focus of the book is on how the requisite knowledge and intention have been defined in the legal instruments which extend that responsibility to new categories of material acts. 'Indirect responsibility' in this sense is concerned with the additional or derivative accountability of the presumed masterminds, intermediaries and 'material supporters' of terrorist operations and activities.
