The Legal Battle Against Terrorism- A Comparative Guide

The Legal Battle Against Terrorism - 

A Comprehensive Guide

Following the September 11th attacks, countries around the world began to understand that the legal apparatus in place meant to deal with terrorism was insufficient. Since then, with the evolution and rise of terrorism, countries have been forced to reevaluate their legal and persecutory methodology for handling terrorists and their supporters.

Through a comparative perspective, this workshop will investigate various countries' legal means for handling terrorism, discussing among other things the new Israeli counter-terrorism laws. The workshop will also delve into various dilemmas that arise as a result of the legal battle against terrorism, including the democratic dilemma and how to balance security and personal privacy.
