TERRORISM: COMMENTARY ON SECURITY DOCUMENTS VOLUME 128

Detention Under International Law: Liberty and Permissible Detention

Douglas Lovelace, Jr. and Kristen Boon

Terrorism: Commentary on Security Documents

  • Presents readers with commentary on how multilateral and regional human rights instruments protect an individual's fundamental right to freedom from arbitrary and unlawful detention, and how human rights courts have upheld these liberties.
  • Contrasts the differences in lawful permissible detention, and situations of administrative and preventative detention, with illegal arbitrary detention under international human rights law.
  • Analyzes how the major human rights courts and treaty bodies at the international and regional levels have upheld and interpreted detention and the right to liberty.
