Abstract

This report is a record of, and reflection on, two days of discussions that took place in Belfast in June 2009 between a group of Irish human rights and community activists and political ex-prisoners, with long experience of dealing with the consequences of counter-terror policy and law introduced because of the conflict in and about the North of Ireland, and representatives of a number of Muslim groups working on similar issues today. The report provides critical insights into the counter-productive effects of counter-terror policies and 'emergency powers' on both Irish and British Muslim communities.
