In the wake of the events of September 11th 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, to date 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 from leading academics and practitioners in the fields of criminal justice, public law, international law, international relations and legal philosophy 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.

...addresses an interesting sequence of topics and raises several problems that have to be addressed in the difficult relationship between security, international law, international relations and human rights. It is an interesting and welcome contribution to the literature in this quite new territory of international concern, showing the importance of multidisciplinary studies, in an area where the link between national and international law becomes more and more relevant. Marco Odello Journal of Conflict & Security Law (2008), 1-4 The book impresses with its variety and scope. Security and Human Rights is readable and engaging, even entertaining. Mia Swart South African Law Journal 2008 ...masterful [analysis] of the problems associated with reconciling security and human rights...highly accessible...human rights analysts, NGO strategists, and policymakers will find [it] a valuable basis and point of embarkation for research and practical policy initiatives. Mahmood Monshipouri Human Rights Quarterly vol. 30
