About this book

This book seeks to examine this process via a detailed empirical exploration of the impact of counter-terrorism measures on the criminal justice systems of three selected EU countries with varying histories and experience of terrorism, namely, the UK, France and Poland. In the burgeoning criminological literature on security, risk and preventive justice that has followed the 9/11 attacks, concerns have regularly been expressed about the ‘contagion’ or normalising effects of counter-terrorist law and its migration to other areas of the criminal law. This book particularly explores the synergistic relationship between counter-terrorism measures and control measures aimed at ‘ordinary’ crimes. It probes the hegemonic power of terrorism and the securitisation agenda more generally and discusses the implications for criminology as a discipline ─  does it, for example, have a role in social contestation of contagion? This book will be suitable for academics and students interested in political violence, terrorism and counter-terrorism as well as practitioners and experts working in the area.
