Terrorism & Justice—The Balance for Civil Liberties
This multidisciplinary academic conference seeks to investigate the breadth of issues underscoring the impact of counter-terrorism efforts upon the diverse concepts of justice at both domestic and international levels.
In the efforts to counter the threats of terrorism, many observers see in assessing their effectiveness and an inherent conflict between the broad interests of security and the protection of individual rights and freedoms. The US Department of State’s Office of the Coordinator for Counterterrorism observed that promotion of liberal democratic views of justice will be a tool in efforts to counter terrorist groups. Restorative justice principles may be invoked in these efforts as longer-term developmental solutions to terrorism.
The organizers anticipate representation at the conference from many disciplines—psychology, sociology, history, political science, philosophy, journalism, criminal justice, disaster management, biology research and legal/justice studies. International perspectives are invited.
