What are the rights of the prisoners held by the United States at the base in Guantanamo Bay? Is their imprisonment lawful? Should we be thinking about strengthening the Geneva Conventions and changing international law? The Parliamentary Assembly, and hence the 47 member states of the Council of Europe, has spoken with one voice, condemning this flagrant violation of human rights and demanding the closure of the Guantanamo detention centre.
Guantanamo: Violation of Human Rights and International Law? contains all the Assembly's arguments, along with the study by the European Commission for Democracy through Law, which brings all its legal expertise to bear in considering whether the detention of people by the United States in Guantanamo Bay is lawful and if there is a need for a change in international law.
