Terrorism and State Surveillance of Communications

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

This book is a collection of work based on selected papers presented at a symposium ‘Removing Safe Spaces: Terrorism, Communication and International Human Rights’, organised by the Editors at Leeds Beckett University in June 2018. The main theme of the symposium focused on terrorist organisations’ use of electronic communications and the law governing relevant agencies and police powers to access to electronic communications, assessing its evidential role and how those powers are balanced with human rights law. The contributors presenting paper’s included practitioners, former practitioners who are currently academics and academics resulting in a wide range of views and arguments related to state agencies’ access to telecommunications data and the surveillance of electronic communications being discussed. As such, the book’s chapters reflect the inter-disciplinary nature of the symposium that covered a practitioner perspective, law, criminology and political science, offering the reader a diversity of opinions and academic approaches to the impact terrorists and criminals’ use of communications has and issues related to the law and practice of the security services and the police.
