Abstract

There is always a trade-off between the rights of an individual and the safety of the community. We will never sacrifice our freedoms in order to defend them but we will not let our enemies exploit our decency either. We need to give our agencies these powers to protect our community. - T Abbott, Prime Minister of Australia, National Security Statement, Canberra, 23 February 2015.

Ultimately, it will not be the CT (counter-terrorism) Laws that deter and prevent terrorism, if that outcome is realistic at all, but much broader and deeper elements and dynamics of Australian and international society that include as just one formed part the counter - terrorism laws. - B Walker, Independent National Security Legislation Monitor, Annual Report 2011 (2012), p. 13.
