Terrorism and Hostages in International Law : A Commentary on the Hostages Convention 1979

Terrorism and Hostages in International Law : A Commentary on the Hostages Convention 1979






Pub Date: 
Publisher:  Cambridge University Press
Summary: This book provides an in-depth commentary on the Hostages Convention and, to a lesser extent, the seven other agreements dealing with offences related to terrorism. The first part examines the general background to the Hostages Convention, the growth in the phenomenon of international terrorism and the various efforts of the world community to deal with it. The second and large part of the book is an entirely new and... comprehensive article-by-article commentary on the Hostages Convention itself. Drawing principally upon the preparatory work for this Convention and the other anti-terrorism conventions, the author analyzes in detail each provision of the Convention as well as its efficacy as a whole in the fight against terrorism. Among the legal issues examined in relation to international terrorism are extradition, asylum, mutual assistance in criminal matters, State responsibility, international efforts to prevent terrorism, the establishment of extra-territorial jurisdiction, the principle of non-refoulement, the relationship between terrorism and the laws of armed conflict, and the use of force in response to terrorism. [read more]
