Analysing Human Rights Amidst Counterterrorism: Addressing Challenges, Dilemmas And Evaluating Perspectives

Divya S Nair, Maharashtra National Law University, Mumbai


"Human rights" refers to the body of law, practice, and research that has developed within an issue which has garnered considerable interest over the past years. This began via the establishment of an entirely new international system following World War II, and it gained even greater visibility with the conclusion of the Cold War in 1989. The worldwide danger to the protection of human rights that these regulations present is a result of the numerous laws against terrorism that have been enacted both at the national and international levels in numerous nations. We can clearly see that crimes like homicide, killings, criminal harm, and similar ones are a component of the framework for human rights because they forbid such assaults on the person by taking action against the people who break these regulations, the government is carrying out its proactive responsibility to shield individuals within its safeguarding against other people violating their freedoms. A criminal proceeding is when guilt is assigned in a manner which preserves the rights of the suspect and, to the extent that whatever system can, guarantees that the penalty will be imposed out to the correct individual. It does this through a variety of evidentiary rules, weighs of evidence, and additional mechanisms. The public must be included as much as possible in this procedure, it must be undertaken autonomously of the state department responsible for identification, and it must take advantage of the public. This makes it clear that a trial before a jury is a crucial component of human rights, safeguarding the public with no becoming involved in instances of individual liberties in the process.

Keywords: Fundamental human rights, counterterrorism, rule of law, international terrorism.
