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. Perhaps new are the widespread scale and the audacity thereof. Similarly, the efforts to create the legal framework to combat terrorism go back a great many years. New, however, is the comprehensive and concise approach. Terrorism and the International Legal Order introduces the reader to the various aspects surrounding the efforts which have been 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. Van Krieken takes the reader back to the basics of international law. He brings together dozens of key documents on terrorism in the context of the international legal order, all preceded by succinct introductions. He pays ample attention to all the UN organs, the Security Council and ECOSOC in particular, and to the European Union and its efforts to harmonize legislation.;As fear exists that the fight against terrorism will erode the human rights regime, Van Krieken puts human rights in the broader context of international law and the quest for peace and justice. But he also extensively addresses the issue of asylum seekers and migrants who may have been, are, or might become involved in terrorism-related acts. All relevant arguments and instruments have been presented in an illustrative and accessible manner.
