Countering acts of misuse of civil aviation (international legal problems)

Cover Page


The article considers the issue concerning the international legal problem of using armed forces to counter the threats posed by the misuse of civil aircrafts. The relevance of this problem is related to the emergence of a new global threat posed by terrorist organizations, which is expressed in the use of civil aircraft as a weapon to kill people and destroy objects on the territory of the States, in the exclusive economic zone and continental shelf. The proof of this are the events of 11 September 2001 in the United States related to the terrorist attack on American cities that led to the massive loss of life and destruction of expensive facilities. Confirmation of the possibility of the recurrence of such events is the adoption in 2010 of the Beijing Convention, which dispositions foresee such actions. This article proves the necessity of the adoption of the universal legal rules governing the actions of states to prevent and suppress acts of misuse of civil aircraft.
