Summary

Terrorism: Commentary on Security Documents is a series that provides primary source documents and expert commentary on various topics in the worldwide effort to combat terrorism. Among the documents collected are transcripts of Congressional testimony, reports by such federal government bodies as the Congressional Research Service (CRS) and the Government Accountability Office (GAO), United Nations Security Council resolutions, reports and investigations by the United Nations Secretary-General and other dedicated UN bodies, and case law from the U.S. and around the globe covering issues related to terrorism. Most volumes carry a single theme, and inside each volume the documents appear within topic-based categories. The series also includes a subject index and other indices that guide the user through this complex area of the law.

Volume 130, Detention Under International Law: Safeguards Against Torture and Other Abuses, is the third in a three-volume arc on detention under international law. This volume provides an overview of the major documents and human rights judgments that address the treatment of the lawfully detained in times of peace and war. Professor Kristen Boon offers commentary on treaties, declarations, reports, and decisions from multinational and regional bodies and human rights courts that discuss the mistreatment of prisoners and enforced disappearances. This volume addresses the need to eradicate the abuse of alleged criminals in detention, including suspected terrorists, and the continued role of the United Nations, regional human rights systems, and local laws to define and eliminate these practices already prohibited by international law.
