Impunity for International Terrorists? Key Legal Questions and Practical Considerations

Following the death of Osama bin Laden, various world leaders, from US President Barack Obama to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, were quick to comment that ‘justice has been done’. However, one could question to what extent the killing of a terrorist has anything to do with ‘bringing someone to justice’ and fighting the impunity of perpetrators of political violence. In this ICCT Research Paper, Research Fellow Dr. Christophe Paulussen discusses several of the key questions related to the subject of impunity of international terrorists, taking both a fundamental and a more practical approach within the context of international law. He reflects on a number of core definitional and theoretical questions which have been pushed into the background of day-to-day reality, by the actual fight against terrorism. Subsequently, in more practical terms, the paper explores a number of questions related to the actual prosecution of terrorism, and problems encountered by national prosecutors and other actors.

Latest ICCT commentary: Containing al Qaeda in Africa

The Arab Spring was remarkable for many reasons but one feature particularly worth noting was the absence of al Qaeda throughout the uprisings. In recent years commentators have begun to suggest that Africa will be the next haven for al Qaeda, with al Shabaab, al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) and Boko Haram all having affiliations with al Qaeda in varying degrees. Those in the counter terrorism field will be monitoring these alliances closely, seeking to understand how great the threat from al Qaeda in Africa may be, how deep these alliances run and where the incentives and ideologies overlap.

A Fear Management Approach to Counter-Terrorism

Spreading fear is the essence of terrorism. Terrorists exploit fear by terrorising the target audience into concessions. Understanding how feelings of fear influence the way people feel, think and act is therefore an important starting point to explore how individuals and societies can learn how to cope with fear of terrorism. In this Discussion Paper, ICCT Research Fellows Prof. Dr. Edwin Bakker and Ms. Tinka Veldhuis MSc explore the dynamics of fear in response to terrorism.

Seminar Counter Terrorism, Technology and Transparency 15 Feb 2012

We live in an age of rapidly developing information and communications technology (ICT) and in many cases policy makers often need to play catch – up. Serious questions abound relating to surveillance, storage of personal information, biometrics and satellite technology. Such measures can greatly aid the fight against terrorism but at the same time they run the risk of encroaching on peoples’ basic human rights. This seminar will examine the role of ICT in what is increasingly becoming “the age of the surveillance society” with the key question: should the use of technological strategies to fight terrorism lead us to reconsider the role of state?
