The use of force against civil aircraft-intruders: international legal aspects

Session

Political Science

Description

This research is devoted to a comprehensive study of international legal problems of combating acts of unlawful use of civil aircrafts. It is focused on the problems that the world community faces in regulating the procedures for taking coercive measures against violating aircraft. The law-making experience of individual states is studied in order to use it to fill-in the existing gaps in international law in this area. The urgency of this problem is associated with the emergence of a new global threat from terrorist organizations, expressed in the use of civil aircraft as weapons for the destruction of objects on the territory of states and peoples’ extermination. The necessity of adopting universal international legal norms governing the actions of states to prevent and suppress acts of inappropriate use of civil aircraft is proven. This research uses qualitative methodology. The analyses are given through the description of the case-studies and critical thinking on the solutions given to them. The moment of special interest for study and research are the International Conventions, on which member states air-traffic have often been violated, as a result of the incompatibility of international law with international interests of these states. In this research, some proposals were developed regarding the adoption of new international legal norms that establish specific grounds and procedures for the use of force (weapons and military equipment), and for the timely suppression of acts of misuse of civil aviation.

Keywords:

misuse of civil aviation, international air law, use of force against aircraft-intruder.
