Abstract

This paper examines UN Security Council Resolutions 1373 and 1624 and the Terrorism Act 2000 as three influential sources that have encouraged states to enact laws against the financing of terrorism, to use immigration law as anti-terrorism law, to employ broad definitions of terrorism and to consider laws against terrorist speech. It is argued that the implications of these trends in anti-terrorism law for either security or human rights have not been carefully thought out, and some possible remedies for the trendy nature of anti-terrorism law are considered.
