Carlos Diaz-Paniagua, who coordinated the negotiations of the proposed United Nations Comprehensive Convention on International Terrorism, noted, on his part, the need to provide a precise definition of terrorist activities in international law: "Criminal law has three purposes: to declare that a conduct is forbidden, to prevent it, and to express society's condemnation for the wrongful acts.The symbolic, normative role of criminalization is of particular importance in the case of terrorism.The criminalization of terrorist acts expresses society's repugnance at them, invokes social censure and shame, and stigmatizes those who commit them.According to Myra Williamson: "The meaning of "terrorism" has undergone a transformation.During the reign of terror a regime or system of terrorism was used as an instrument of governance, wielded by a recently established revolutionary state against the enemies of the people.

'Terrorism' currently lacks the precision, objectivity and certainty demanded by legal discourse.
