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. It examines institutional responses of the United Nations as well as specific practices like the targeted killing, sanctioning or expulsion of terrorist suspects and considers relevant developments before domestic and international 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. Written 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 with respect to their compatibility with human rights standards. It will be of considerable interests to students, scholars and practitioners in this area.
