Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book Immigration Detention and Human Rights Rethinking Territorial Sovereignty lists table of contents, acknowledgements and a list of abbreviations. This book argues that human rights in the specific context of immigration detention can function as "destabilisation rights", subjecting to full legal scrutiny those claims that the national state presents as predominantly based on its territorial sovereignty. The resulting destabilisation of territorial sovereignty in both domestic and international constitutionalism will have ramifications for a number of instruments of migration control, the perceived necessity and legitimacy of which is almost exclusively based on the self-referential notion of territorial sovereignty.

Keywords: constitutionalism; immigration detention; territorial sovereignty
