Examining the relationship between the obligation to fight terrorism and the obligation to protect human rights
Violating Human Rights in the Name of Counter Terrorism? (2012)
That terrorism infringes people’s human rights is something that everybody knows, especially after 9/11. However, terrorism does not have the monopoly on violating human rights. Counter-terrorism, consisting of different methods to fight terrorism, infringes human rights as well. While fighting terrorism, human rights ought to be respected. However, States do not always live up to this obligation. Next to an examination of the relationship between the obligation to fight terrorism and the obligation to protect human rights, this book describes the way in which counter-terrorism measures, specifically blacklisting and targeted killings, touch upon people’s human rights. The second part of this book includes the most important documents with regard to counter-terrorism and human rights.
