The Human Rights of Anti-terrorism

The Human Rights of Anti-terrorism

Edited by Nicole LaViolette and Craig Forcese


The Human Rights of Anti-terrorism contains timely explorations of some of the most important issues facing the international community today. The book is a collection of papers by internationally-recognised scholars and thinkers from across Canada and around the world to a June 2006 colloquium on Human Rights and Anti-terrorism held in Ottawa. The colloquium grappled with the interrelationship between anti-terrorism, human rights, and international humanitarian law.

The Ottawa Principles on Anti-terrorism and Human Rights, which grew out of deliberations at the colloquium, are included here along with ten chapters which are not only supplement and explain the foundations of the Ottawa Principles, but also provide readers with substantive critiques of topics related to human rights and anti-terrorism more generally.
