Counter-terrorism is now a permanent and sprawling part of the legislative and operational apparatus of the state, yet little is known about the law and practice of how it is reviewed, how effective the review mechanisms are, what impact they have, or how they interact with one another. This book addresses that gap in knowledge by presenting the first comprehensive, critical analysis of counter-terrorism review in the United Kingdom, informed by exclusive interviews with policy makers, politicians, practitioners and civil society.

Review Quotes
David William Kinloch Anderson, Baron Anderson of Ipswich, KBE, QC
“Democracy requires intrusive state powers, used on the basis of secret intelligence, to be subject to strong independent review. This book helps define what that review should look like.”
Surabhi Chopra, Chinese University of Hong Kong
''This book breaks ground by comprehensively analyzing various modes of scrutinizing counter-terrorism law, policy and practice, including judicial, governmental, legislative and civil society mechanisms. The capacious understanding and fair-minded, actionable critique of “counter-terrorism review” that the authors develop will prove useful to governments, researchers and NGOs in the UK and internationally.''
