Preventive detention law is a subject which continues to receive great international attention. In recent years the legal rights of detainees have been more and more frequently litigated, and significant new approaches have been developed. The purpose of this book is to provide a discussion of the new preventive detention law in 15 common-law jurisdictions, mainly in Asia and Africa, focusing on the practical operation of the law rather than the theoretical issues relating to the legitimacy of such laws. The book should be of practical assistance to those practicing or studying this area of law. It should be of interest to human rights lawyers, activists and researchers. All the chapters are contributed by academics or practitioners specializing in the field of human rights law.
