This chapter delivers a brief overview of the way in which human rights and national security intersect to challenge the international human rights system in a variety of ways. To do so, it sets the stage for developing key elements of the transitional phases of human rights that frame this book. It considers how human rights became synonymous with liberal democracy and why this in and of itself presents a range of challenges when considered in the context of global peace and security. This is followed by a discussion of how human rights quickly transitioned from a general acceptance period to successive periods of uncertainty driven by counterterrorism discourse. It delivers an overview of how the contributions to this book map onto this background and closes by highlighting the key themes running throughout the volume.
