Examining some of the huge challenges that liberal States faced in
the decade after 11 September 2001, the chapters in this book
address three aspects of the impact of more than a decade of
military action.This book begins by considering four different
expressions of universalist moral aspirations, including the
prohibition of torture, and discusses migration and `responsibility
to protect,' as well as the United Nations Human Rights Committee's
Concluding Observations about security and liberty in the last
decade. International humanitarian law and the problems posed by
the territorial character of war and the effects of new
technologies and child soldiers are also analysed. Finally, Islamic
law and its interface with international law is considered from a
new perspective, and contributions in this final part offer a
different way of thinking about an authentically Islamic
modernisation that would be compatible with Western models of
political order.With contributions from international lawyers from
diverse backgrounds, this book fills an important gap in the
literature on the themes of international human rights law,
international humanitarian law and Islamic law.
