Confronting Global Terrorism and American Neo-Conservatism

Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter begins with a discussion of the war on terrorism and how it managed to link a cluster of policy issues that were previously more loosely connected. The proper definition of and response to terrorism; the universality of human rights and the limits of sovereignty; the proper interpretation and application of humanitarian law; the legitimate use of force; the treatment of minorities (particularly illiberal minorities within western states); the authority and modes of interpreting international law — each subject has overlapped and penetrated each other. The chapter then discusses the concepts of liberalism, human rights, terrorism, and neo-conservatism.
