Terrorism as a Challenge for National and International Law: Security versus Liberty?
The events of 11 September 2001 have provoked worldwide reactions to fight terrorist activities in national legal orders. They have also led to significant developments in international law with respect to combat terrorism by military and non-military action. The volume "Terrorism as a Challenge for National and International Law: Security versus Liberty?" addresses the issues raised in a comprehensive manner. It comprises country-reports with analyses of the developments in a number of countries which have been selected on the basis of their involvement in anti-terrorist activities. Basing on these country-reports the volume traces new developments in the definition of international terrorism, deals with the issue of human rights protection under new anti-terrorist legislation and examines the recent developments towards international military action against terrorism.
