This large work examines how useful the European Convention on Human Rights can be in the sensitive area of national security law and practice. The first part of the book examines the national security concept generally in the Convention and in the context of the European states. The second part provides detailed studies of secret surveillance and security data banks. Part three contains an article by article analysis of the case law of the Commission and the Court. Important topics include: security issues, right to life, forced labor, fair trials, family life, freedom of expression, freedom of association, and much more.
