This chapter examines the innovative provisions and drafting of the International Convention for the Suppression of Terrorist Bombings of 1997, which provides for international cooperation in connection with the unlawful and intentional use of explosives and other lethal devices, in, into or against various defined public places, with intent to kill or cause serious bodily injury or to cause extensive destruction of the defined public place. By addressing for the first time broad issues such as bombings of public buildings, destruction of infrastructure and attacks with toxic chemicals and biological agents, it substantially expands international cooperation into areas that had previously largely been addressed solely by local law enforcement and bilateral cooperation agreements.
