Human rights and the struggle against terrorism in the United Kingdom

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle (Academic Journal)peer-review

Abstract

Examines the UK's anti-terrorism legislation since the terrorist attacks in New York of September 11, 2001, examining which domestic anti-terrorist laws are appropriate for the current climate. Considers how the four competing objectives of responsible management of often incalculable risk, and compliance with democracy, the rule of law, and human rights can be simultaneously fulfilled. Contrasts the present terrorist threat with the UK experience in Northern Ireland. Outlines key characteristics of the UK's response to terrorism before and after the 2001 attacks.
