Advanced Summer Programme on Countering Terrorism within a Rule of Law FrameworkDetails

T.M.C. Asser Instituut

This Advanced summer programme on terrorism, counter-terrorism and the rule of law is coming back for the 8th time to bring together experts, academics and policy makers from around the world working in the field of counter-terrorism. It will take place from 26 – 30 August 2019 at the Asser Institute in the Hague. 

The Advanced summer programme on terrorism, counter-terrorism and the rule of law is coming back for the 9th time .This well-established interactive course brings together experts, academics and policy makers from around the world working in the field of counter-terrorism. This year’s edition will take place from 26 – 30 August at the Asser Institute in The Hague. 

Terrorism events such as 9/11 (US), 7/7 (UK), 13/11 (Paris) and others have triggered an increase in the security-related laws in a number of states across the world. These legislative provisions are aimed to address perceived ‘gaps’ in existing domestic legislation and security strategies, and to bolster states’ ability to respond to acts of terrorism.

Proportional and legitimate? 
In trying to pre-empt terrorism related activities as early as feasible, states have developed a range of new or updated administrative and criminal law measures. They have further introduced curbs on financial and other support and limitations on the scope of the right to freedom speech. But are these legislative measures proportional and legitimate? That is the focus of our upcoming advanced summer programme on terrorism, counter-terrorism and the rule of Law.

The programme, co-organised by the Asser Institute and the International Centre for Counter-Terrorism – The Hague (ICCT), offers an in-depth look at the challenges that come with adopting and implementing counter-terrorism measures while ensuring respect for human rights, fundamental freedoms and the rule of law. During an intensive week, experts from within academia and practice explore international and domestic legal aspects of counter-terrorism.

This year’s programme covered a wide range of topics such as the (lack of a) definition of terrorism in international law, legal limits to military responses to terrorism, criminal justice responses to terrorism, the crime-terror nexus, evidentiary issues (including evidence collection from a battlefield) and other prosecutorial challenges, administrative and security measures. Aside from the core lectures, the course also included interactive sessions, study visits, group discussions (Chatham House Rules) and panel presentations.
