The Council of Europe has been dedicated, since 1949, to upholding human rights, the rule of law and pluralist democracy. Terrorism repudiates these three fundamental values and the Council of Europe is determined to combat it. The Council of Europe has drafted a number of international legal instruments and standards which reflects the importance it attaches to combating terrorism and illustrate the underlying message of the Organisation, which is that it is possible to fight efficiently against terrorism while upholding the basic values that are the common heritage of the European continent. The updated, enriched second edition of this book contains these texts and is intended to provide a handy, comprehensive document.
