TERRORISM: COMMENTARY ON SECURITY DOCUMENTS VOLUME 129

Detention Under International Law: The State of Emergency Exception and Evolving Topics

Douglas Lovelace, Jr. and Kristen Boon

Terrorism: Commentary on Security Documents

  • Discusses how multilateral and regional human rights treaties and courts have defined a "state of emergency" exception to allow detention under international law in some circumstances.
  • Analyzes how international and regional human rights courts have preserved and interpreted the right of habeas corpus, the right to challenge one's own detention in court.
  • Details how the concerns of international humanitarian law and international human rights law have continued to intersect and overlap, from World War II through recent conflicts in East Timor and Libya.
