Chapter 30: Terrorism and migration law

Elspeth Guild


What is the relationship between international law, migration and terrorism? In this chapter I examine how international law in the field of refugee protection, international protection against torture, criminal law in the form of the anti-trafficking protocol and international labour migration intersect with national security concerns and terrorism threats. An analysis of the texts indicates that there is very little convergence between the two. Similarly, in a review of UN measures against terrorism, migration and refugee protection are most noticeable by their absence. Yet, there is a clear need for human rights standards to be available to migrants, whether forced or not when they are accused of or suspected of constituting a terrorism risk.
