Korte beschrijving

In an effort to prevent a terrorist attack, legislators increasingly resort to criminal law measures at an early stage of the iter criminis. This dissertation subjects terrorism-related offences on expression, information and movement in four Western-European countries (i.e. Belgium, the Netherlands, France and the United Kingdom) to a legitimacy test, based upon the principles of subsidiarity, proportionality and legality. Whilst subsidiarity primarily focusses on the grounds of criminalization (and more in particular on the harm principle), proportionality and legality are reflected in a human rights assessment. Throughout the dissertation, the criminal law provisions are connected to a funnel model of radicalization. The main research findings demonstrate that the mens rea requirements often do not suffice in order to compensate the lowered threshold of criminal behaviour (i.e. actus reus).
