Conor Gearty has been writing on human rights, civil liberties and terrorism for over twenty-five years. In this book, his writings on the global, regional and comparative dimensions to his subject are brought together for the first time. The book contains articles from law journals and literary periodicals as well as written versions of a number of distinguished lectures on these topics that have been given by the author.
There are also three especially commissioned pieces on the particular application of human rights law and practice in Asia, dealing with the universality of human rights, the impact of 'Asian values' on human rights, and the challenge posed by China for contemporary human rights thinking. With chapters on the United States and the European region, and also on such terrorism/human rights related problems as Northern Ireland, the book offers a broad overview of a series of legal issues pressing in on the world today.
Written in the author's characteristically lucid style, the book should appeal to international lawyers, comparative lawyers, practitioners in the field of terrorism and human rights and to the general reader concerned to understand some of the most important challenges facing the world today.
