Chapter Summary

Since the appalling attacks of September 11, 2001 we have been immersed in what is generally known as the war against terrorism, the so-called first war of the 21st Century whose main victim may well be the international order itself, the basic principles of co-existence which have governed international relations over recent decades. International law permits cooperation on the transport of detainees provided it is carried out with full respect for human rights and other international obligations. Because terrorism is a threat to international peace and security all States in the international community are under the obligation to cooperate with counter-terrorism which thus becomes a matter of common interest. In the case of the European Union (EU), more forceful measures must be adopted to refine State responsibility to comply with the principle of respect for human rights expressed in EU Treaty article 6.
