Antiterrorism in Western Europe

  • John B. Wolf
Part of the Criminal Justice and Public Safety book series (CJPS)

Abstract

Antiterrorist measures employed by the governments of western European nations include the enactment of legislation limiting constitutional guarantees in the areas of arrest, search and seizure, and lawyer—client communications, legalization of improved methods to gather covert information, computerized investigative networks, and the formation and utilization of specialized police squads. Intended to be hostile to the terrorists by impacting directly on their organization and operations, all these antiterrorist measures have been legitimately derived from established legislatures.
