Book description

In this book, Fiona de Londras presents an overview of counter-terrorist detention in the US and the UK and the attempts by both states to achieve a downward recalibration of international human rights standards as they apply in an emergency. Arguing that the design and implementation of this policy has been greatly influenced by both popular and manufactured panic, Detention in the 'War on Terror' addresses counter-terrorist detention through an original analytic framework. In contrast to domestic law in the US and UK, de Londras argues that international human rights law has generally resisted the challenge to the right to be free from arbitrary detention, largely because of its relative insulation from counter-terrorist panic. She argues that this resilience gradually emboldened superior courts in the US and UK to resist repressive detention laws and policies and insist upon greater rights-protection for suspected terrorists.


‘Detention in the 'War on Terror' is an illuminating discussion of not only the subject of detention, but the influences and effects on international law as a whole … the research and depth of analysis is extensive and meticulous, the writing is clear and fluid and the main argument is a principled account of the continuing story of the resilience of international law during a period of crisis.'
