In this volume the reader will find several studies on legal measures pertaining to the fight on terrorism. These measures are critically analysed against the background of international and European guarantees of civil rights. In the contributions it is reasoned that recent measures, at least partly, fall short with regard to different legal standards. Cases that are studied in the context of security relate to questions on the use of secret evidence in criminal procedures, the legal protection of people on blacklists, the protection of privacy guaranteed by the case law of the European Court of Human Rights, and the legal status of the prisoners of Guantánamo Bay and the requirements of the Geneva Conventions. Also discussed are lessons learned from the past in an examination of the state response
to terrorist activities by Moluccan groups in the Netherlands in the 1970s. These and other topics are dealt with by renowned Dutch scholars in the field of international, European, criminal and constitutional law.
