Chapter Summary

The terrorism is a threat to everything the United Nations stands for; respect for human rights, the rule of law, the protection of civilians, tolerance among peoples and nations and the peaceful resolution of conflicts. The strategy against terrorism should be comprehensive and should be based on five pillars; dissuading people from resorting to terrorism or supporting it; denying terrorist access to funds and materials; deterring States from sponsoring terrorism; developing State capacity to defeat terrorism; but also defending human rights (stressing the need for counter-terrorism measures to be compatible with international human rights laws). The debate on so-called "State terrorism" has been set aside on the rationale that the use of force by States is already regulated thoroughly under conventional and customary international law.
