About this title


'The 40 experts assembled by Ben Saul who are addressing the many-faceted legal issues connected to the ever-expanding meaning of 'terrorism' are remarkable. Even after 50 years of scholarship on the subject, a book like this one is both relevant and useful.'
- Cherif Bassiouni, DePaul University College of Law, US

Foreword by Georges Abi-Saab

This landmark Handbook provides a comprehensive overview of all major areas of international counter-terrorism law and practice, both before and after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. The specially commissioned, original chapters assess how international law addresses terrorism from the perspectives of human rights, the law of armed conflict, the law on use of force, and international criminal law.

With contributions from leading scholars and practitioners in the field, the book addresses the major controversies in the global legal response to terrorism, including the war on terror, drone strikes and targeted killings, torture and renditions, indefinite detention, military trials, UN Security Council measures and sanctions, judicial supervision, the issue of gender, and the role of Islam. Each chapter provides a succinct overview and critical commentary of the law. The law of regional organizations and selected national practice are also examined.

International law scholars and practitioners, as well as government and United Nations legal advisers, will find this an invaluable reference on a complex area of legal inquiry.
