Law and Society Association Annual Meeting 2018

We have put together a panel on ‘Accountability for Counter-Terrorism‘ at the LSA Annual Meeting 2018 in Toronto. The panel is chaired by Professor Victor V Ramraj (University of Victoria) and includes papers by Professor Kent Roach (University of Toronto), Professor Craig Forcese (University of Ottawa), Dr Nicola McGarrity (University of New South Wales), and Dr Michael Nesbitt (University of Calgary), as well as ourselves.

The panel explores the current state of accountability for counter-terrorism in Australia, Canada, and the UK. In doing so it highlights the challenges faced across all three jurisdictions.


On 28 September 2018, the Counter-Terrorism Review Project will host a half day invitation only stakeholder workshop at Wolfson College, Oxford. At the workshop, we will present the findings of the empirical research conducted as well as our proposals for reform of UK counter-terrorism review with a view to garner critical responses as to their accuracy, practicability, and potential effectiveness. This will inform the finalisation of the proposed reforms. It will also serve as an opportunity for counter-terrorism review practitioners and civil society to engage in constructive dialogue about how counter-terrorism review currently works, and about desired reforms.

More information on the workshop will be available in due course.
