In the name of fighting terrorism, countries have been invaded; wars have been waged; people have been detained, rendered and tortured; and campaigns for "hearts and minds" have been unleashed. Human rights analyses of the counter-terrorism measures implemented in the aftermath of 11 September 2001 have assumed that men suffer the most-both numerically and in terms of the nature of rights violations endured. This assumption has obscured the ways that women, men, and sexual minorities experience counter-terrorism. By integrating gender into a human rights analysis of counter-terrorism-and human rights into a gendered analysis of counter-terrorism-this volume aims to reverse this trend. Through this variegated human rights lens, the authors in this volume identify the spectrum and nature of rights violations arising in the context of gendered counter-terrorism and national security practices. Introduced with a foreword by Martin Scheinin, former UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights and Counter-Terrorism, the volume examines a wide range of gendered impacts of counter-terrorism measures that have not been theorized in the leading texts on terrorism, counter-terrorism, national security, and human rights.

Gender, National Security and Counter-Terrorism will be of particular interest to scholars and students in the disciplines of Law, Security Studies and Gender Studies.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This text features an impressive array of authors providing stereoscopic, interdisciplinary, and cross-cultural perspectives on the complex yet under-theorized relationship between terrorism and gender. It promises to sharpen our thinking about how terrorism and counter-terrorism efforts affect the daily lives of women and the way in which both phenomena can entrench gender stereotypes and discrimination. It offers critical guidance on designing counter-terrorism policies that will preserve and enhance the range of human rights-civil, political, economic, social and cultural-to which women are entitled." Professor Beth Van Schaak, Stanford University
