About Security and Human Rights

This is the second edition of the acclaimed Security and Human Rights, first published in 2007. Reconciling issues of security with a respect for fundamental human rights has become one of the key challenges facing governments throughout the world. The first edition broke the disciplinary confines in which security was often analysed before and after the events of 11 September 2001. The second edition continues in this tradition, presenting a collection of essays from leading academics and practitioners in the fields of criminal justice, public law, privacy law, international law, and critical social theory. The collection offers genuinely multidisciplinary perspectives on the relationship between security and human rights. In addition to exploring how the demands of security might be reconciled with the protection of established rights, Security and Human Rights provides fresh insight into the broader legal and political challenges that lie ahead as states attempt to control crime, prevent terrorism, and protect their citizens. The volume features a set of new essays that engage with the most pressing questions facing security and human rights in the twenty-first century and is essential reading for all those working in the area.

“[A] highly important collection of very different approaches showing how human rights are getting under pressure when security and the war on terror are becoming implanted as the only solution to a common fear promoted by populist politics. But the collection as well is balanced showing necessary measures of prevention and law enforcement and how they can be conducted without inherently structurally damaging human rights.” –  Carsten Momsen, Cäcilia Rennert and Marco Willumat, Kriminalpolitische Zeitschrift
