These subjects include the dilemma of how to reach agreement on a definition of what constitutes terrorism, the different legal responses to terrorism by states and international organizations) and the role of the United Nations Security Council in developing legal regimes to combat terrorism, such as the use of targeted sanctions or by general Iegislative measures.
