Abstract

As the focus of the international legal effort to prevent terrorism shifts to addressing the social processes leading to terrorism, focusing on preventing the spread of terrorist ideology, tension arises between counter-terrorism measures and freedom of expression. This chapter focuses on the principal legal measure adopted in this context, namely the criminalization of incitement to terrorism, as manifest in two international instruments, UN Security Council Resolution 1624(2005) and the Council of Europe's Convention on the Prevention of Terrorism.

Keywords: freedom of expression, incitement, apologie, UNSCR 1624(2005)
