Abstract

Counter-terrorism policy requires a delicate balance between important interests representing fundamental values of liberal democracies. This substantive issue, however, is preceded by the question who the final authority should be to decide where the tipping line of this balance is to be placed. What is the role of courts in finding this balance, and which decisions should be reserved for the executive?
