International Terrorism and Islamic State Practices: Texts and Materials

Islamic states (ie the 57 members of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference) have ratified a number of important treaties banning terrorism, but information on the text of these commitments, as well as ratifications, is extremely difficult to obtain. This book brings together for the first time the texts of, and participation by, Islamic states in the nineteen international and regional conventions on terrorism. The book includes: the text of all relevant treaties dates of signatures and ratifications of the treaties by the member states listings of reservations, declarations and notifications an anlysis of the contributions of Islamic states to the formulation of individual treaties. There is also an introductory section placing the book in its historical context and a commentary on the relevant treaties.
