Terrorism is a phenomenon in the contemporary world which occupies the attention of the international community. Terrorism as an international crime is readily more comprehensible and susceptible of clearer definition than sheer acts of terrorism by whomsoever performed. This paper is confined to questions of responsibility and complicity in connection with terrorism as an international crime, whatever the definition is ultimately adopted of "terrorism," and whatever the meaning to be ascribed to an "international crime."


Paper presented at the International Legal Colloquium on Terrorism As An International Crime, by the Tel Aviv University Paula Goldberg Research Fund in International Law, held at Tel Aviv University, December 20-22, 1988.

It was also published in 1 Israel Yearbook On Human Rights 1989.
