Key components of an effective criminal justice response to terrorism

An effective rule of law-based criminal justice response to terrorism involves more than the mere ratifi cation and implementation of the universal instruments against terrorism. In addition to the appropriate laws, policies and practices, criminal justice practitioners need ongoing capacity-building and specialized training to enable them to respond effectively to the increasingly complex nature of terrorist crimes.
