Index Number: EUR 45/6347/2023

Amnesty International submits the following response to the call to evidence by the Independent Commission on UK Counter-Terrorism Law, Policy and Practice. This submission is a select summary of Amnesty International’s work on counter-terrorism concerns in the UK since 2007. The past 15 years have seen the adoption of wave upon wave of new counter-terror legislation, together with the increasing securitisation of life in the UK which continues to negatively affect a wide range of human rights, including the rights to fair trial, liberty, private and family life, non-discrimination and nationality; freedom of movement, association, religion and the principle of non-refoulement.
