On the contrary, they provide helpful criteria by which to identify and oppose state terrorism. The challenge for scholars, however, is determining whether violent acts by state representatives can be labelled state terrorism, and when acts of state terrorism are part of a wider, institutionalized policy. As with other atrocities, there is a scarcity of evidence that shows explicitly such acts to have been sanctioned by the state. We are therefore faced with considerable challenges in identifying agency and intent when atrocities are committed.
Torture is often intended to alter behaviour among a much wider audience well beyond the prison walls. It was used in this way by the Guatemalan state during the counterinsurgency war of the 1970s and 1980s, during which, as Amnesty International reported, newspapers were permitted to publish photographs of dead torture victims. . included the terrorisation of targeted rural populations in an effort to ensure that they did not provide support for guerrillas. Tortured, dying villagers were displayed to relatives and neighbours who were prevented from helping them.
A case of state terrorism, as such, was never put to the legal test, although acts that violated international law and were intended to terrorize were tried as war crimes. In this regard, state terrorism can be defined with reference to the illegality of the acts it involves, even though we cannot argue that state terrorism itself is illegal. State terrorism involves the deliberate targeting of individuals that the state has a duty to protect to invoke terror in a wider audience. The deliberate targeting of civilians, either in armed conflict or in peace-time, violates principles 16 R.
