Abstract

The terrorism suppression treaty regime has developed in a piecemeal fashion, each treaty adopted in response to a specific act of ‘headline-grabbing’ terrorism committed by non-State actors, and with a view to ensuring there is no impunity for such type of terrorist conduct in the future. The question examined in this article, viewed through the particular prism of terrorism suppression, is ‘what are the potentialities and limitations of reactive law making’? The answer to this question in the terrorism suppression context is heavily conditioned by the historical and political context within which the treaties were negotiated, not least because these treaties are at the crossroads of criminal responsibility for non-State conduct and the rights of peoples to self-determination.
