Published annually, Terrorism: International Case Law Reporter is a collection of the most important cases in security law from around the world. Handpicked and introduced by internationally renowned terrorism scholar Michael Newton and by a distinguished board of global experts, the cases included cover topics as diverse as human rights, immigration, freedom of speech, and terrorist financing. All cases are also accompanied by headnotes that summarize the key issues for the benefit of researchers. This unique resource serves scholars, students, and practitioners seeking an authoritative and comprehensive resource for security law research like no other publication on the market.

The 2012 edition includes cases highlighting issues such as:

* Whether the Patriot Act amendment to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, allowing surveillance where a "significant purpose" of the surveillance is foreign intelligence gathering, violates the Fourth Amendment;
* Whether the High Court of Uganda should accept the doctrine of void for vagueness and find the Anti-Terrorism Act as void and unenforceable;
* Whether the motive clause of the Terrorism section of the criminal Code of Canada is unconstitutional;
* Whether India's constitutional right of due process, including the right to both a speedy and a fair trial, requires that a criminal case arising from an incident fifteen years prior be remanded for a de novo trial or be vacated;
* Whether the Torture Victim Protection Act extends liability against nonsovereign organizations;
* Whether the United Kingdom Borders Act of 2007 creates a statutory presumption that deportation of a foreign criminal is in the public's interest which supersedes the determination of a court and the immigrant's interest of remaining in the nation; and
* Does the state secrets doctrine overcome an individual's right of truth in an extraordinary rendition case?

Each annual edition serves a function of unique and growing importance as the one source that juxtaposes international decisions with those emanating from domestic forums. The comprehensive index also helps the reader to synthesize the commonality of issues.

This publication can also be purchased on a standing order basis.
