Annotation: DISCUSSION OF THE PROVISIONS OF EXISTING INTERNATIONAL AGREEMENTS CONCERNING TERRORISM AND THE DEFINITIONS THEY PROVIDE, THEIR LEGAL IMPLICATIONS AND LOGICAL VALIDITY, AND THE EXTENT TO WHICH THE NATIONS CONFORM TO THEM.
Abstract: THE AUTHOR DEFINES TERRORISM AS ANY ACT OF ARMED VIOLENCE WHICH IS COMMITTED FOR A POLITICAL, SOCIAL, PHILOSOPHICAL, IDEOLOGICAL OR RELIGIOUS PURPOSE AND VIOLATES THE COMMON LAWS OF HUMANITY IN REGARD TO THE USE OF CRUEL AND BARBAROUS MEANS, ATTACKING INNOCENT TARGETS, AND ATTACKING TARGETS OF NO MILITARY SIGNIFICANCE. MANY NATIONS HAVE FAILED TO RATIFY INTERNATIONAL AGREEMENTS ON TERRORISM AND PROVISIONS CONCERNING THE COMMON LAWS OF HUMANITY ARE VIOLATED REGULARLY. THERE SEEMS TO BE LITTLE LIKELIHOOD THAT THERE WILL COME INTO BEING AN INTERNATIONAL AGREEMENT ON WHICH ALL NATIONS WILL AGREE AND TO WHOSE PROVISIONS THEY WILL CONFORM - AT LEAST IN THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE. --IN FRENCH
