The International Categories of Victims

  • Carlos Fernández de Casadevante Romani
Chapter

Abstract

The first thing that must be underlined is the non-existence of an international concept of victim. On the contrary, there are almost as many definitions as categories of victims envisaged by international norms. The exception is constituted by victims of terrorism because no definition exists both in the system of the UN and in the regional systems.
