This Handbook brings together leading scholars and practitioners to examine the prolific body of international laws governing terrorism. It exhaustively covers the global response to terrorism in transnational criminal law, the international law on the use of force, international humanitarian law, international human rights law, the law of State responsibility, the United Nations Security Council, General Assembly, UN specialised bodies, and regional organisations. It also addresses special legal issues in dealing with terrorism such as gender, religion, victims of terrorism, weapons of mass destruction, and customary law.

Cyber terrorism has not been specifically prohibited or criminalized at the international level. Nonetheless, there is no lacuna in international law that leaves cyber terrorism completely unregulated or unpunished. This chapter surveys the legal framework governing cyber terrorism at international law, considering both existing sectoral and regional anti-terrorism treaties, and the incomplete UN Draft Comprehensive Anti-Terrorism Convention. It then questions whether there is a need for an international cyber terrorism instrument. The utility of such an instrument will depend on the gravity of the threat of cyber terrorism, the scale of technical challenges in addressing that threat, the stigmatizing value of such a convention, and the possible human rights implications.

This ground-breaking book focuses on the ‘forgotten refugees’, detailing people with disabilities who have crossed borders in search of protection from disaster or human conflict. The authors explore the intersection between one of the oldest international human rights treaties, the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees, with one of the newest: the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). Drawing on fieldwork in six countries hosting refugees in a variety of contexts – Malaysia, Indonesia, Pakistan, Uganda, Jordan and Turkey – the book examines how the CRPD is (or should) be changing the way that governments and aid agencies engage with and accommodate persons with disabilities in situations of displacement. The timeliness of the book is underscored by the adoption in mid-2016 of the UN Charter on Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities in Humanitarian Action adopted at the World Humanitarian Summit.
