Preventing and Combating Terrorism


Geneva Switzerland

About

To what extent may states limit and/or derogate from their international human
rights obligations in order to prevent and counter terrorism and thus protect persons
under their jurisdiction? Which and whose human rights are at risk when states fight
terrorism? What are the human rights challenges posed by the United Nations counterterrorist sanctions regime? In which circumstances may lethal force – including
drone strikes – be used against alleged members of terrorist groups or so-called ‘lone
wolves’? Which international law rules apply in relation to the internment/detention
and interrogation of persons accused of terrorism? These are some of the key issues
discussed in this short course, addressing several rights including the right to life,
the right to liberty, the prohibition of torture, the right to property, and freedom of
movement. Although the course is mainly human rights oriented, other international
legal frameworks such as jus ad bellum and international humanitarian law will
be touched upon. Recent trends in counter-terrorism, such as the preventing and
countering violent extremism agenda, will be discussed in light of their human rights
impact.

Law in Armed Conflict. It is open to professionals – diplomats, lawyers, legal advisers,
