ABSTRACT

This paper reviews the counter-terrorism systems and legislation in Spain and provides implications for discussion on anti-terrorism legislation in South Korea. Spain has a long history of internal political violence. It has developed the extensive counter-terrorism provisions and strategies in response to internal violence and established strict measures and system to combat terrorism. However, unlike most western countries, Spain has not adopted any specific counter-terrorism legislation. Instead, it has applied the existing legal regime to counter-terrorism. Nonetheless, there has been criticism that Spanish counter-terrorism provisions would infringe people’s basic human rights. Even though the need to prevent and combat terrorism is swiftly and effectively clear, it is important to implement counter-terrorism measures with full respect for human rights. In conclusion, the implications of the Spanish case for South Korea are discussed.
