Overview


Published annually, Terrorism: International Case Law Reporter is a collection of the most important cases in security law from around the world. Handpicked and introduced by internationally renowned terrorism scholar Michael Newton and by a distinguished board of global experts, the cases included cover topics as diverse as human rights, immigration, freedom of speech, and terrorist financing. All cases are also accompanied by headnotes that summarize the key issues for the benefit of researchers. This unique resource serves scholars, students, and practitioners seeking an authoritative and comprehensive resource for security law research like no other publication on the market.

The 2010 edition includes cases highlighting issues such as:

* The interface of domestic law with international obligations in the context of armed conflict;
* The permissible scope of criminal legislation prohibiting material support to terrorists;
* The domestic implementation of the Security Council-mandated regime for freezing terrorist assets;
* Rights of plaintiffs to challenge domestic anti-terrorism legislation on constitutional grounds;
* Legality of state decisions to attempt targeted killings of citizens alleged to have committed hostile acts;
* The standards for evaluating claims for habeas corpus;
* The sufficiency of multinational cooperation in the investigation and prosecution of perpetrators;
* The degree to which state actors are immunized from personal accountability due to their official acts; and
* Boundaries between transnational terrorism and the globalized media.

Each annual edition serves a function of unique and growing importance as the one source that juxtaposes international decisions with those emanating from domestic forums. The comprehensive index also helps the reader to synthesize the commonality of issues.

This publication can also be purchased on a standing order basis.
