Abstract

Human Rights Law and the International Fight Against Terrorism: How do Security Council Resolutions Impact on States’ Obligations Under International Human Rights Law? (Revisiting Security Council Resolution 1373) CLÉMENTINE OLIVIER* 1. Introduction On September 11th 2001, four airplanes were high-jacked and crashed into the two towers of the World Trade Centre in New York City, the Pentagon in Washington D.C and in Pennsylvania. 1 These attacks provoked unprecedented shock for various reasons. It happened in the USA and the targets were symbols of the American identity. The drama was followed live: the collapse of the Twin Towers was broadcast live on television; dozens of bodies were seen jumping from windows. 2 Some of the passengers of the plane managed to phone their relatives and talk to them during the hijacking. The technique of the attack itself was also shocking: civilian planes transporting civilian passengers were used as weapons. Hence, although US interests had previously been under attack, in September 2001 the shock reached an unprecedented level. On 28 September 2001 the Security Council of the United Nations acting under Chapter VII of the Charter adopted Resolution 1373. 3 For the first time, Nordic Journal of International Law 73
