Show Summary Details


Chapter 1 outlines the structure of analysis in the book, and sets out the basic framework of State responsibility (principally as contemplated in the ILC Articles on State Responsibility). It introduces the applicable international legal framework, focusing on the overlapping regimes of international law which address the threat of international terrorism – in particular, the regime of international criminal law enforcement treaties which respond to particular manifestations of terrorism; Chapter VII of the UN Charter; the jus ad bellum and Article 51 of the UN Charter; and international humanitarian law. Finally, Chapter 1 defines international terrorism for the purposes of the book, drawing on elements of the international legal framework applicable to terrorism.
