ABSTRACT
Certain measures adopted by the United Nation's Security Council in the field of combating terrorism have been questioned not only because of their possible ultra vires nature, but because they are considered as highly deficient with regards to the protection of Human Rights concerning the individuals whom they affect. Facing an International Court of Justice, which seems inadequate to assume a stronger role as a means of legality control of the Council's acts, the Member States of the United Nations have assumed such a role in order to ensure an adequate protection of their citizens. Within this context, the actions taken by the courts at the European regional level have served as mechanisms of legality control to the excesses of the Council. However, conflicts concerning the overlapping of the normative orders involved prevent these entities from performing this function adequately
