Security and Human Rights
Benjamin Jervis Goold, Liora Lazarus
Hart, 2007 - Political Science - 391 pages
In the wake of the events of September 11, 2001, the task of balancing issues of security with a respect for fundamental human rights has emerged as one of the key challenges facing governments throughout the world. Although the issues raised by the rise of security have been the subject of considerable academic interest, much of the debate surrounding the impact of security on human rights has taken place within particular disciplinary confines. In contrast, this collection of essays â?? from leading academics and practitioners in the fields of criminal justice, public law, international law, international relations, and legal philosophy â?? offers a genuinely multidisciplinary perspective on the relationship between security and human rights. In addition to exploring how the demands of security might be reconciled with the desire to protect established rights, Security and Human Rights offers a fresh perspective on the broader legal and political challenges that lie ahead for countries in their efforts to control crime, prevent terrorism, and protect their citizens from harm.
