Privatized counter-terrorist surveillance : constitutionalism undermined.

Abstract

This chapter is concerned with the constitutionalist challenges posed by privatized counter-terrorist surveillance (PCTS). PCTS is defined here as surveillance done for the purposes or in the course of a broader counter-terrorist regime and in which private (by which is meant non-state) actors are involved. This chapter characterizes PCTS as one illustration of a broader trend of privatization in counter-terrorism and problematizes it as a phenomenon that severely undermines the core constitutionalist commitment to limited, transparent and accountable power.
