about this item

Now available in paperback, this book is a detailed study of EU action to combat terrorism since 2001 and the implications that action has had for the EU legal order. It critically examines EU counter-terrorism measures to ascertain how rule of law principles have been affected in the 'war on terror' and analyzes the common European definition of terrorism along with related offenses contained in: the Framework Decision on Combating Terrorism * the EU's anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist finance laws * UN and EU targeted asset-freezing sanctions * EU data retention measures, such as the Data Retention Directive and the Passenger Name Records agreements * the European Arrest Warrant and European Evidence Warrant. The book argues that EU counter-terrorism is weakening the rule of law and bypassing safeguards in favor of a system emphasizing coercive control over individual autonomy. It concludes by examining the prospects for the future as the EU becomes a more powerful security actor following the Lisbon Treaty and the adoption of the Stockholm Program. [This book was the second prize winner of the 2013 Society of Legal Scholars Peter Birks Prize for Outstanding Legal Scholarship.] (Series: Modern Studies in European Law) [Subject: European Law, International Law, Comparative Law, Criminal Law]
