Launching the Counter-Terrorism and Human Rights Law and Policy Clinic: Counter-Terrorism and Human Rights - Reviewing the War on Terror.
Over the last two decades the UK, the US and other states have been in an all-consuming ‘War on Terror.’ Preventing and countering terrorism and shoring up national security have become important law and policy priorities in states all over the Global North. But how effective have these counter-terrorism laws and policies been? In what ways, and to what extent, have they impacted the human rights of individuals, families and communities? Has this impact on human rights been even and consistent, or has it targeted specific ‘suspect communities?’
To discuss these urgent and significant questions, join us for the launch of the Counter-Terrorism and Human Rights Law and Policy Clinic on Thursday 17 February, 4-5.30pm. Our lecturer in Law, Dr Fatima Ahdash, will be in conversation with visiting professor, Professor Liora Lazarus whose research expertise lies in the area of criminal justice, security and human rights. Dr Ahdash will also be speaking with Maya Foa, the head of Reprieve, an NGO that specialises in seeking accountability for human rights abuses in the area of national security.
Please note that although this event will launch the Counter-Terrorism and Human Rights Law and Policy Clinic, all Goldsmiths students are warmly welcome.
