Ethical and Human Rights Issues in Countering Transnational Organised Crime and Terrorism
Ethics and Security: Terrorism and Transnational Organised Crime is a programme of ethics research led by Professor Tom Sorell as a Leadership Fellow of the Partnership for Conflict, Crime & Security Research.
It is based in the Interdisciplinary Ethics Research Group in the Department of Politics and International Studies at the University of Warwick.
- How can police and security agencies legitimately deploy their resources in order to prevent crimes and disrupt criminal activity?
- What special issues arise when dealing with those who have not harmed others, but pose a small risk of doing so?
- When should we prefer the additional legal protections afforded by prosecution?
The work focuses on cross-cutting issues in policing in international counter-terrorism and serious crime, including the use of surveillance and infiltration, the meaning of “proportionality,” and whether there is a clash between paradigms of security and justice in the criminalization of some offences.
