Description

Having defended terrorist suspects in a European court, and having trained judges in turbulent African countries, author Christophe Marchand analyzes the conflict between the global war on terror and European principles of human rights and civil liberties. As opposed to other publications on this topic, European Trends in the War on Terror approaches the security-vs.-liberty dilemma through direct observations and insights. Readers who have been researching the same issues in the context of the U.S. Constitution will benefit from this book's analysis of how Europe has tried (and often failed) to reconcile security and liberty. In addition, reseachers will also gain an in-depth understanding of the broad changes wrought in European criminal law over the last several years.show more
