This title takes a comparative approach to the evaluation of human rights in the prevention and punishment of terrorism within the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. The text first looks at the question of defining terrorism, and examines the international and domestic frameworks for countering terrorism. The second part of the book provides an overview and analysis of international and regional human rights law and its capacity to allow for the limitation of rights and freedoms when pursing important objectives such as the countering of terrorism, as well as providing a comparative review of human rights laws in each country. The final and most extensive part of the text begins with an overview of the interaction between counter-terrorism and human rights, followed by thematic and case study evaluations of discreet topics.
