Sanctioning International Terrorist Organizations (ITOs): The Changing Paradigm of International Legal Personality?

Contenido principal del artículo


Este trabajo aborda el problema de la así llamada “guerra contra el terrorismo”, las sanciones de la ONU y la posible responsabilidad penal internacional de las organizaciones terroristas internacionales (OTI), y la influencia de las mismas en el concepto contemporáneo de “personalidad jurídica internacional”. De este modo, las OTI, como destinatarios de las normas jurídicas internacionales que incriminan el terrorismo y las sanciones por ese delito, adquieren algún tipo de capacidad jurídica internacional que podría llevar a su personalidad jurídica internacional.
