Terrorist as a Subject of International Law? -An analysis in the light of 9/11-


  • von Block-Schlesier, Benjamin

    () (PhD.-Student at Danube University Sladkovicovo Faculty of Law)


Starting from the definition of the subjects of international law, this essay looks at the main actors of the international community and the modern development of international law, which was and still is in particular characterised by widening the circle of subjects, due to the influence of globalisation. Non-Governmental Organisation and Multinational Enterprises will be in the focus as well as individuals and Liberation movements. These built the basis in the question if terrorists could and should be a subject of international law. The analysis shows that necessary legal norms, especially chapter VII of the UN-Charter do not impede the possibility of accepting private individuals or groups as subjects of the international legal system and signals a passive legal personality as a possible option.
