  • pt. 1. Democratic oversight of the security sector in member states
  • pt. 2. Democratic oversight of the security services
  • pt. 3. Democratic control of the armed forces.
Faced with the growing threats of terrorism and international organized crime, European societies are feeling an increasing need for both domestic and external security. Government action to combat these threats must be lawful - and also legitimate - and be conducted with due respect for human rights, democracy and the rule of law, which are fundamental Council of Europe principles. The question arises as to who is going to exercise democratic oversight in this area. What are the roles of parliaments, the executive, the judiciary and civil society? Do supervisory bodies exist at supranational level? This book presents the various players and their duties in the security field and confirms the need to strike a balance between a democratic conception of fundamental freedoms and security safeguards, on the basis of reports by the Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly and the European Commission for Democracy through Law.--Publisher's description.

  • Detentions by the United States in Guantánamo Bay
  • Possible need for further development of the Geneva Conventions.
What are the rights of the prisoners held by the United States at the base in Guantanamo Bay? Is their imprisonment lawful? Should we be thinking about strengthening the Geneva Conventions and changing international law? The Parliamentary Assembly, and hence the 47 member states of the Council of Europe, has spoken with one voice, condemning this flagrant violation of human rights and demanding the closure of the Guantanamo detention centre."Guantanamo: Violation of Human Rights and International Law?" contains all the Assembly's arguments, along with the study by the European Commission for Democracy through Law, which brings all its legal expertise to bear in considering whether the detention of people by the United States in Guantanamo Bay is lawful and if there is a need for a change in international law.
