UofT Professor on Canadian Counter-Terrorism Law

Well-known University of Toronto law professor Kent Roach has written a post about The Canadian Terrorist Attacks and Canadian Counter-Terrorism Law on the US-based Just Security website.

The article examines some of the existing powers in the Criminal Code that can be used against suspected terrorists, and discusses the issues surrounding proposed amendments that would expand powers of Canadian intelligence services.

Roach is the author of The 9/11 Effect: Comparative Counter Terrorism Law (Cambridge University Press, 2011) and the editor of Comparative Counter-Terrorism Law (forthcoming from Cambridge University Press).

He served as research director for the Canadian inquiry into the 1985 terrorist bombing of Air India Flight 182 flying from Canada to New Delhi that caused the largest loss of life in Canadian history from a single terrorist attack, and on the research advisory committee of the commission of inquiry into the extraordinary rendition of Maher Arar to Syria.

Just Security is based at the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice at New York University School of Law.
