Criminal Justice, Legal Responses
The criminal justice sector plays a critical role in combating terrorism. An effective and prevention-focused response to terrorism should include a strong criminal justice element: one that is guided by a normative legal framework and embedded in the core principles of the rule of law, due process, and respect for human rights. The widespread ratification and implementation of the universal legal instruments against terrorism is an essential part of a comprehensive criminal justice response.
