In the public debate, many observers have argued that there is a trade-off between fighting terrorism and enhancing democracy, implying that democratic governance and its practices are obstacles to confronting terrorism effectively. The purpose of this volume is to show that the values and principles of democracy must not be seen as a hindrance but should rather be considered as essential components of a counter-terrorist strategy. With a foreword by Fernando Henrique Cardoso, former president of Brazil, the essays here assess the elements of a new response against terrorism, such as the role of the legal framework, human rights, democracy and civil society, as well as international cooperation.
