Fiche détaillée de "The law on terrorism : the UK, France and Italy compared"

This book analyses the anti-terrorism regimes of the United Kingdom, France and Italy, with particular reference to the period from 2001 to the present day. It explores in detail how counter-terrorism policies and measures have affected the individual rights of those who become suspected of terrorism, derogating from the guarantees that are normally available to suspects and defendants in the criminal justice process.

The research places anti-terrorism legislation developments in a broader context of major changes within modern society in Western Europe, which are challenging the traditional setting of all criminal justice systems: in particular the perilous emergence of an "us and them" approach to criminal justice, which German legal writers call a Feindstrafrecht. In this way, it traces the potential long-term impact of exceptional anti-terrorism measures on the criminal justice system as a whole through a process of "normalisation" of extraordinary measures.
