THE LEGAL IMPACT OF THE LACK OF A THEORETICAL DEFINITION OF TERRORISM TOWARDS RIGHTS ENSHRINED IN THE CHARTER OF THE UNITED NATIONS

Waleed Fuad Mahameed, Jamal Barafi

Abstract


The present study aims to investigate the legal dimensions of legislative inertia towards the concept of terrorism over international legal rules. The study has revealed that the legislative inertia regarding the
definition of terrorism has led to the right of legitimate defence to be stripped from its objective basis and restricting the powers of the State to practise manifestations of its sovereignty. The study has concluded that the absence of a specific definition for terrorism has made the right of self-determination lose its legal and executive power and has led to confusion between political terrorism and the right to self-determination.
