International Co-operation, Human Rights and Counter-Terrorism provides a comprehensive analysis of international human rights problems and challenges in contemporary counter-terrorism practice and law.

This book identifies the key issues of counter-terrorism practice and policy which have arisen in the last decade, and which have major human rights implications. Ranging from the expulsion of terrorist suspects to the role and accountability of intelligence agencies, these issues have been the subject of international and regional debate, as well as several cases that have very recently been brought before domestic and regional courts. With this emerging body of international and domestic case law, it is now possible to consider key aspects of contemporary counter-terrorism law and practice with greater authority. And in a non-legalistic, interdisciplinary and practical manner, International Co-operation, Human Rights and Counter-Terrorism addresses the emerging trends in international jurisprudence and policy on counter-terrorism law; and considers the human rights compatibility of specific aspects of contemporary counterterrorism. It will be of considerable interests to students, scholars and practitioners in this area.
