UK Court of Appeal: exclusion clause under Article 1F(C) and incitement to terrorism

On 26 April 2018, the England and Wales Court of Appeal ruled in case Youssef v. Secretary of State for the Home Department, relating to the scope of the exclusion clause under Article 1F(C) of the 1951 Refugee Convention and the incitement of terrorism. Mr Youssef managed a website glorifying Al Qaeda, its leaders and terrorism in general.

The Court of Appeal accepted that the appellant had not incited or encouraged any specificact of terrorism or violence that had been later carried out, nor had he been involved in committing such acts. However, it ruled that incitement to terror which cannot be shown to be linked to any specific crime or attempted crime may still be sufficient to contravene Article 1F(C). Yet, this is subject to a high threshold as the activity concerned must be capable of affecting international peace and security. It may require, for instance, the evidence of wide international readership, large-scale repetition, impact, or citation by those who joined an armed struggle.
