FERRAJOLI, Luigi. Guerra y terrorismo internacional. Un análisis del lenguaje político. Anu. Mex. Der. Inter [online]. 2009, vol.9, pp. 13-33. ISSN 1870-4654.
In this essay about political violence, Ferrajoli reflects about the real meaning of terms such as war and terrorism. He discovers the irrational implications that entail a deliberated and unfortunate military answer, instead of a rational one that comes from criminal law when a crime has been committed by a terrorist group and not by the innocent habitants of whole nations. The author questions the illegitimate wars, such as those promoted by the United States against Afghanistan and Iraq as an answer to the attacks of September 11, 2001. He also propose the restoration of the pact of connivance between nations, because if not, the only solulion for the future will be the permanent war.
