Summary
Uses practical examples to argue that a State's lack of respect for human rights is counter-productive and hinders its fight against terrorism. Through analysing legislative developments since 2001, this book examines how and why many counter terrorism measures have so far been unsuccessful; arguing that longer term, a human rights-centric approach is required. Various counter terrorism measures, including mass digital surveillance, the use of drones, and the use of torture are examined. The impact of counter terrorism measures on migration, civil society, and the delivery of humanitarian assistance are assessed. The chapters serve to show that a lack of accountability for human rights violations in these areas can be conducive to an increase in terrorist activity
