International law, Terrorism--Prevention--Law and legislation, Human rights
Much of contemporary terrorism uses the products of globalization in recruitment, financing and other operations. The transnationalism of terrorism, together with the cross-border connectedness of people, capital, communication infrastructure and politics, have combined so that states now act in concert on a wide variety of issues, one of which is counterterrorism.
In this lecture, Professor de Londras outlines institutional, multi- and bi-lateral forms of transnational counterterrorism, arguing that "external actors" are deeply involved in directing counterterrorism. This has serious implications for constitutonalism and human rights, raising questions as to accountability, autonomy, legitimacy and the effective protection of human rights.
