The proliferation in terrorist activity has provoked an increase in the body of law, both at national and international level, which has sought to counter and prevent it. The bodies involved in this process range from the UN Security Council to government legislatures. This book is the first to address, in one volume, the wide variety of responses to terrorism as they exist in both international and domestic contexts. It also represents the first ever comprehensive collection of documents referring to terrorism which are to be found in the laws of the UK and France as well as in international law. Terrorism and International Law comprises contributions by thirteen well-known authorities in the areas of international, French and UK law, and is divided into four main sections: international cooperation against terrorism, the French and British responses to terrorism, the limits of state action and a documentary supplement. The contributors have sought to show how international and domestic law can be used together to combat the multi-faceted problems which terrorism raises. The issue of human rights is also discussed with particular reference to the jurisprudence of the European Commission and Court of Human Rights. The fourth documentary section of the book provides coverage of international treaties, UN resolutions, UK and French legislation, case-law and official statements relating to terrorism. This book provides an invaluable source of commentary and reference material in the area of terrorism and international and domestic law which will be useful for practitioners, diplomats, students and teachers.

International anti-terrorism measures existed long before 11 September 2001 but have increased markedly since. A myriad of norms in different branches of law are now deployed to confront transnational and domestic terrorism. There is also a proliferating body of 'soft law' addressing terrorism, stemming from United Nations organs, specialised international bodies and regional organisations. It is timely to draw together these diverse legal developments over time into a single reference work. Bringing the original documents together provides for ease of reference and enables scholars, practitioners and students to more easily compare and contrast various sources. The book's coverage is comprehensive (thematically, organisationally, geographically and temporally) and open to a balance of sources (hard and soft), but is judicious in its selection and prioritisation of the most significant and representative documents - in a field where there are many repetitive or insubstantial documents. Importantly, the book looks beyond the traditional trans-Atlantic bias towards European, British and American sources in this area to include materials from Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East. Taken as a whole, the book aids in evidencing the emerging field of international anti-terrorism law.

Terrorism is often presented as the scourge of the 21st century. Yet, the September 2001 events did not come out of the blue as terrorism is not a new phenomenon. Similarly, the efforts to create the legal framework to combat terrorism go back many years. New, however, is the comprehensive and concise approach. This book introduces the various aspects surrounding efforts undertaken to enhance cooperation and coordination in the war against terrorism. It deals with jurisdiction and extradition, with the ICC and the ICJ, with safe havens and cross-border aspects.

Volume 113 of Terrorism: Commentary on Security Documents, Piracy and International Maritime Security provides key international materials on piracy.

This volume also contains documents that discuss international jurisdiction over the crime of piracy and its enforcement. Piracy is one of the few international crimes subject to universal jurisdiction, which gives all states the right but not the duty to prosecute. International case law on the use of force in apprehending pirates is provided, along with national piracy legislation and cases.

In this volume of Terrorism: Commentary on Security Documents, entitled "U.N. Response to Al Qaeda", new General Co-Editor Kristen Boon covers the history that started with U.N. Security Council Resolution 1267 in 1999 and that continues today. In that document, the United Nations establishedsanctions against any individuals or organizations financially supporting those two terrorist organizations or Osama bin Laden. With her expert commentary on all documents flowing from that resolution, Boon traces the unfolding fate of those sanctions, from the amending resolutions that expandedthe sanctions' purview to the provision of a notice period for targeted parties to specific countries and regions' implementing legislation to court challenges claiming that the sanctions violate the targeted parties' human rights. No other book offers what this volume does: an expert guide to theU.N.'s first effort at sanctioning a select group of parties rather than a broad, comprehensive category of unspecificed people.
