Réflexions sur les instruments de droit pénal international et européen de lutte contre le terrorisme

Abstract : The gravity of terrorism and the threat it poses to international peace and security, owing to its cross-border nature, have compelled the international community to adopt guidelines on "best practices" to combat terrorism. This issue is the focus of this thesis, as it highlights respect for the rule of law, enshrines the supremacy of the law in international counter-terrorism efforts, and seeks to grasp the motives of terrorists for embracing violent radicalisation. In this regard, international and European criminal law instruments bring the specificity of international counter-terrorism to the fore. The global and integrated nature of international counter-terrorism has led prosecution authorities to broadly define the scope of offences with a view to pre-empting and responding swiftly to acts of terrorism. Gradually, as a result of the upsurge of attacks worldwide and especially, since 11 September 2001, this proactive tendency has bolstered the criminal justice system that was in place. It is a responsive system characterized by sector-specific conventions and protocols. The transnational scope of acts of terrorism commands multiform and multifaceted cooperation between national and international agencies.
