Abstract


This article explores the possibility of prosecuting terrorism as crimes against
humanity under the ICC treaty. Even-though terrorism is not explicitly
mentioned as a crime that falls under the jurisdiction of the International
Criminal Court, it can however be adjudicated at the ICC by interpreting it
as included in Article 7 of the Rome Statute. Article 7 of the ICC Statute can
be used as a legal basis for prosecuting terrorist acts if the acts fulfill the
Article’s general requirements. The text of the Rome Statute does not need to be amended in order to encompass acts of terrorism.
