Description : The articles in this volume focus on the appropriate relationship between rights and counterterrorism policy and form part of the surge of scholarship on security and human rights resulting from the 'war on terror'. The articles also take account of issues of security where terrorism is not a factor, and reflect the attempt to rethink more generally the concept of security and its relationship to rights.

Description : This book examines how key developments in international relations in recent years have affected intelligence agencies and their oversight. Since the turn of the millennium, intelligence agencies have been operating in a tense and rapidly changing security environment. This book addresses the impact of three factors on intelligence oversight: the growth of more complex terror threats, such as those caused by the rise of Islamic State; the colder East-West climate following Russia’s intervention in Ukraine and annexation of Crimea; and new challenges relating to the large-scale intelligence collection and intrusive surveillance practices revealed by Edward Snowden. This volume evaluates the impact these factors have had on security and intelligence services in a range of countries, together with the challenges that they present for intelligence oversight bodies to adapt in response. With chapters surveying developments in Norway, Romania, the UK, Belgium, France, the USA, Canada and Germany, the coverage is varied, wide and up-to-date. This book will be of much interest to students of intelligence studies, security studies and International Relations.

Description : This is the second edition of the acclaimed Security and Human Rights, first published in 2007. Reconciling issues of security with a respect for fundamental human rights has become one of the key challenges facing governments throughout the world. The first edition broke the disciplinary confines in which security was often analysed before and after the events of 11 September 2001. The second edition continues in this tradition, presenting a collection of essays from leading academics and practitioners in the fields of criminal justice, public law, privacy law, international law, and critical social theory. The collection offers genuinely multidisciplinary perspectives on the relationship between security and human rights. In addition to exploring how the demands of security might be reconciled with the protection of established rights, Security and Human Rights provides fresh insight into the broader legal and political challenges that lie ahead as states attempt to control crime, prevent terrorism, and protect their citizens. The volume features a set of new essays that engage with the most pressing questions facing security and human rights in the twenty-first century and is essential reading for all those working in the area.

Description : The Oxford Handbook of National Security Intelligence is a state-of-the-art work on intelligence and national security. Edited by Loch Johnson, one of the world's leading authorities on the subject, the handbook examines the topic in full, beginning with an examination of the major theories of intelligence. It then shifts its focus to how intelligence agencies operate, how they collect information from around the world, the problems that come with transforming "raw" information into credible analysis, and the difficulties in disseminating intelligence to policymakers. It also considers the balance between secrecy and public accountability, and the ethical dilemmas that covert and counterintelligence operations routinely present to intelligence agencies. Throughout, contributors factor in broader historical and political contexts that are integral to understanding how intelligence agencies function in our information-dominated age. The book is organized into the following sections: theories and methods of intelligence studies; historical background; the collection and processing of intelligence; the analysis and production of intelligence; the challenges of intelligence dissemination; counterintelligence and counterterrorism; covert action; intelligence and accountability; and strategic intelligence in other nations.

Description : This collection of essays pays tribute to the manifold career of Peter Russell, a political scientist and an energetic participant in constitutional debate. Based on the proceedings of a conference held in 1996, the book is divided into five parts: Constitutional Politics, Aboriginal Peoples, Security and Intelligence, Law and Society and the Courts. The essays themselves discuss important issues throughout Russell's scholarship, including democratic accountability, political deliberation, and cultural diversity. Joseph Fletcher has brought together a group of contributors, both scholars and practitioners, whose backgrounds reflect Russell's own diverse academic and personal interests. As a result, the work is a successful blend of analysis and reflection. Few Canadian academics exhibit the level of productivity that Peter Russell has over the years, and this collection celebrates his significant contribution as a scholar and an activist.

Description : Security and intelligence agencies are granted unparalleled powers, human rights are restricted, governments keep secrets from their citizens, and huge sums of public money are spent, all in the name of `national security'.Beginning with a critical theoretical examination of `national security' and arguing that this concept should be infused with values of democracy and human rights, the authors go on to discuss many important topics, including telephone tapping, bugging, and the collection and retention of personalinformation on file. Other issues analysed include employment vetting and security, detention and deportation, restrictions on the press, and the use of criminal law to stifle criticism.Finally, the mandate, powers, and mechanisms for executive and ministerial control of the security and intelligence agencies are scrutinized, the nearly-completed Scott Inquiry is considered, and the Intelligence Services Act 1994 is analysed in a detailed Coda.This comparative study draws upon a wide range of sources, and, uniquely, upon numerous interviews with security officials in the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia.In From the Cold is a timely and comprehensive treatment of issues which continue to pose the greatest challenge to democratic states.
