Detention of Suspected Terrorists: Balancing Human Rights and Security

Martinez discusses the detention of suspected terrorists in comparative perspective, with a special focus on the U.S. detention of so-called enemy combatants at Guantanamo and elsewhere. She addresses the legality of such detentions, both in terms of international law and of domestic constitutional law, and examines the policy considerations underlying various alternative legal procedures for dealing with suspected terrorists.
