Comparative Counter-Terrorism and Human Rights

Order Description

According to Amnesty International’s Report “Dangerously Disproportionate. The Ever-expanding National Security State in Europe” released in 2017: “The last two years have witnessed a profound shift in paradigm across Europe: a move from the view that it is the role of governments to provide security so that people can enjoy their rights, to the view that governments must restrict people’s rights in order to provide security.” Critically discuss this statement in the light of the counter-terrorism legislation passed by the UK since 9/11 with particular attention to The Counter-Terrorism and Security Act of 2015.
