Designing ETPIMS around ECHR review or normalisation of 'preventive' non-trial-Bbsed executive measures?

Fenwick, H. (2013) 'Designing ETPIMS around ECHR review or normalisation of 'preventive' non-trial-Bbsed executive measures?', Modern law review., 76 (5). pp. 876-908.


This article considers the transition in 2012 from control orders to more ECHR-compliant ‘terrorism prevention and investigation measures’ under the Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures Act 2011. It argues that the interaction between security and liberty over the post 9/11 years has the appearance of a dialogue between courts and the executive that has resulted in a diminution in the repressive character of non-trial based preventive measures. But such an impression, it will be contended, is obscuring the recalibration of ECHR rights that has occurred, easing the path to the introduction of the enhanced version of TPIMs, under the Enhanced Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures Bill. The proposed ETPIMs exhibit many of the objectionable features of control orders and are currently ready to introduce if the threat level rises.
