Human Rights in the 'War on Terror'


Since the 9/11 attacks and the ‘war on terror’, have human rights become a luxury that we can no longer afford, or must rights always remain a fundamental part of democratic politics since they define the boundary between individual freedom and government tyranny? This volume brings together leading international lawyers, policy-makers, activists and scholars in the field of human rights to evaluate the impact on human rights of the ‘war on terror’, as well as to develop a counter-terror strategy which takes human rights seriously. While some contributors argue that war is necessary in defence of liberal democracy, others assert that it is time to move away from the war model towards a new paradigm based upon respect for human rights, an internationally coordinated anti-terror justice strategy and a long-term political vision that can reduce the global tensions that generate a political constituency for terrorists.
