The ‘War on Terror’ and the Framework of International Law

Helen Duffy (Cambridge University Press)

£34 (paperback) / £70 (hardback)

Written by INTERIGHTS’ Legal Director, Helen Duffy, this book sets out in an accessible manner the international legal framework governing terrorism and counter terrorism, and to highlight examples of international practice since 11 September 2001. It seeks to assist practitioners and others grappling through the fog of the ‘war on terror’, in which international law is often notably absent. Ultimately it hopes to counter the perception of legal vacuum and the challenge to legality that some of the worst features of the ‘war on terror’ represent.
