Terrorism Lists, Executive Powers and Human Rights

conference

19.10.2009, 00:00 Uhr

One of  the most controversial aspects of the so-called “war on terror” is the proscription or designation of alleged terrorists, their associates and financial supporters by the European Union and the United Nations. Hundreds of groups and individuals around the world have been placed upon various “terrorist lists” and subject to the freezing of their assets, travel bans and other serious sanctions. Despite the gravity of the accusations and the impact of their designation upon fundamental rights, affected parties have been systematically denied the right to mount a meaningful challenge to their inclusion on the lists. This conference brings together a distinguished group of expert practitioners, lawyers, academics and human rights organisations to examine these issues and consider possible ways forward.
