Security and Human Rights by Benjamin J. Goold

Book Description

In the wake of the events of September 11th, the task of reconciling issues of security with a respect for fundamental human rights has emerged as one of the key challenges facing governments throughout the world. Although the issues raised by the rise of security have been the subject of considerable academic interest, to date much of the debate surrounding the impact of security on human rights has taken place within particular disciplinary confines. In contrast, this collection of essays from leading academics and practitioners in the fields of criminal justice, public law, international law, international relations and legal philosophy offers a genuinely multidisciplinary perspective on the relationship between security and human rights. In addition to exploring how the demands of security might be reconciled with the desire to protect established rights, Security and Human Rights offers a fresh perspective on the broader legal and political challenges that lie ahead as states attempt to control crime, prevent terrorism and protect their citizens.

CCTV and Policing by Benjamin J. Goold CCTV and Policing, Hardback (February 2004)

CCTV and Policing considers how the introduction of closed circuit television has affected policing practices in Britain. Based on original field research, the volume examines the factors that have shaped police CCTV use, and challenges claims that the spread of public area CCTV is indicative of a movement towards authoritarian forms of policing.
