Professor Emeritus Clive Walker publishes “leading work” on Terrorism Law

Professor Emeritus Clive Walker of the University of Leeds, School of Law has recently had his book, The Routledge Handbook on Law and Terrorism, published by Routledge in July 2015. The co-editor is Dr Genevieve Lennon, who is a PhD graduate of the School of Law and now works as a Fellow at Strathclyde University.

With a foreword written by David Anderson QC (the government’s Independent Reviewer of Terrorism Legislation), this Handbook provides an authoritative, comprehensive, and critical analysis of how laws are, and ought to be, invoked in domestic jurisdictions against terrorism. The original contributions (30 chapters in all) are written by experts in the field of terrorism law and policy, allowing for discussion of a wide range of regulatory responses and strategies of governance. The chapters engage with areas of traditional interest to lawyers such as policing, criminal offences, the courts, and prison regimes but also tackle emerging subjects including preventing radicalisation and protective/preparative security.
