Abstract

This dissertation examines the conception of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon, a hybrid court of international character created in the wake of the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri on 14 February 2005. It is considered that the method of conception, the incorporation of the highest international standards of human rights and due process, and the unique manner of defining and prosecuting terrorism serve in combination to meet the Tribunal’s mandate, while also fulfilling the Security Council’s mandate of restoring and maintaining international peace and security.

Keywords: International Criminal Tribunal, legitimacy, terrorism, due process, Lebanon
