This issue of Utrecht Law Review is devoted to a problem that is by no means new: the protection of human rights and individual freedoms in criminal process. Indeed, the question of how to reconcile the necessary powers of the state for maintaining order and ensuring the security of society with their inevitable encroachments on the freedom of citizens and their right to be treated with the respect and dignity they command as human beings is a perennial one in the field of criminal law. But for all that, and despite great advances in the establishment of international human rights conventions and in the academic study of human rights, the answers, though tantalisingly close in theory, have in practice become increasingly complicated and pressing in recent years.
