THE JURISDICTION OF THE INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT (ICC) WITH CRIMES OF INTERNATIONAL TERRORISM (BETWEEN THE POSSIBILITY OF EXTENDING THE COURTS CURRENT JURISDICTION AND THE NEED FOR FUTURE AMENDMENT OF THIS JURISDICTION)
 
Terrorism is now a widespread phenomenon of concern that threatens international peace and security and that its crimes constitute one of the most serious crimes against the peace and well-being of mankind. In this regard, we would like to highlight the study importance, since all the circumstances and facts of reality have made it necessary to include the crimes of international terrorism within the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court, which was established as a basis for the maintenance of international peace and security by prosecuting and punishing the perpetrators of the most serious crimes against peace and human security. There is no doubt that the crimes of international terrorism are among the most serious, if not the most dangerous crimes at present. Through this research paper, we have tried to explain and clarify the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court (ICC) to deal with crimes of international terrorism and whether this jurisdiction can be exercised in accordance with the current Statute of the Court or in the context of future amendments to the ICC, to conclude the study with a set of findings and recommendations that we consider necessary to counter this type of crime.

Keywords: Jurisdiction of The International Criminal Court ; The Crimes of International Terrorism ; Future Amendments to The Statute of The ICC.
