Terrorism Legislation Database

The United Nations Office for Drug and Crime (UNODC) has created a comprehensive database containing counter-terrorism conventions, national criminal laws and case laws relevant to terrorism (press release). National authorities can access model laws, legislative guides and other legal tools to assist in adopting the legislation necessary to implement the global legal framework against terrorism. The database has 3 main components:

An international legal resources section includes full texts of the universal instruments against terrorism, action by the Security Council and General Assembly on terrorism, regional instruments against terrorism, and jurisprudence of international courts on terrorism.

The core segment of the database is composed of national legal resources which includes legislation from more than 190 countries.

The third component is the section on additional legal resources that provides links to other databases, model laws, treaties and practical guides developed by United Nations bodies and other international organizations.
