El terrorismo como elemento generador de la mutación de la figura de la agresión. Efectos evolutivos o involutivos en el derecho internacional

By Andrea Mateus-Rugeles and Juan-Ramón Martínez-Vargas


International Law has a close relation with the conflict; being the first one thethesis, the second one its antithesis, and the synthesis, the dialectic exercise thatcharacterizes relations among the nations of the world which seek to be regulated.The emergence and later acknowledgment of terrorism as a phenomenon thatattempts against international peace and security, alerted the International Society,which, before the magnitude of its consequences, initiated a frontal fight againstthis scourge. The events that took place on September 11, 2001, undoubtedlyreshaped the role of the Security Council of the United Nations in relation toboth the concept of aggression and the legitimate use of force. In this context, animportant discussion appears, and is related to the effects of that transformation;either on the evolutionary way of an essential dynamic international law or in itsinvolution in the sense that the Security Council understood that terrorist actsperpetrated by an undetermined actor constitute acts of aggression, whetherbeing an State or not state agent
