Abstract

September 11, 2001: A Turning Point in International and Domestic Law? brings together international experts working in the fields of international law and international and European relations to explore the domestic and international legal responses to the events of September 11, 2001 across a range of topics from a cross-cultural perspective. Amongst the questions that this collection of themed essays addresses are - What is "terrorism"? Did the attacks of September 11 mark a defining moment in the Post Cold War era? What responses may terrorism legitimately attract? What is the legal status of the detainees on Guantanamo Bay? Have the national and international responses to the attacks of September 11 created new legal paradigms?
