Overview

The Question of Terrorist Detention Centres

In the 21st century, terrorism is an ever-present threat that governments have sought to eradicate. With the detention of terror suspects in facilities across the world, sometimes indefinitely, claims of alleged abuse and harm in these facilities are widespread; criticism substantiated by an increasing number of reported suicides among detainees. How then, can the HRC protecting these detainees’ human rights, whilst still achieving the aims of these anti-terrorist facilities?

The Issue of Juvenile Justice

Recent trends show an increasing number of juveniles being detained by police due to their involvements in criminal activities. To make matters worse, a large number are being tried as adults under the court of law, exposing them to even harsher punishment and treatment in their respective detention centres. The HRC must therefore evaluate the extent to which juveniles can be charged by the law, and produce solutions to ensure that their human rights are upheld.
