Abstract: PROVISIONS COVERING ACTIVITIES OF THE TERRORIST TYPE ARE ORDINARILY PRESENT IN THE CRIMINAL CODES OF ALL NATIONS. WHEN A COUNTRY GOES TO THE TROUBLE OF ENACTING A SPECIAL LAW CONCERNING TERRORISM IN ADDITION TO WHAT IS ALREADY IN THE CRIMINAL CODE, THERE ARE TWO POSSIBLE EXPLANATIONS. EITHER THERE IS A DESIRE TO MAKE THE LAW MORE EFFECTIVE THROUGH INTIMIDATION OR CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES HAVE ARISEN WHICH MAKE NEW LEGISLATION DESIRABLE, AS IN FRANCE AT THE TIME OF THE STUDENT RIOTS IN MAY 1968 OR IN SPAIN IN CONNECTION WITH THE BASQUE SEPARATIST ACTIVITIES. --IN FRENCH
