Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book British and Canadian Perspectives on International Law presents the table of contents, acknowledgements, and notes on contributors. British and Canadian legal actors show an openness to comparative and international law which invites scholarly treatment under a transnational paradigm. The celebrated rulings from the House of Lords on the detention of foreign terror suspects and on use of intelligence gained by torture of terror suspects cite the decisions of both foreign and international tribunals with apparent ease. In Canada, decisions on deporting individuals where they might face death or torture have drawn on a similar transnational dialogue with international and comparative sources.

Keywords: British legal actors; Canadian legal actors; international law
