ICJ submission to the Universal Periodic Review of the United States of America

This review represents the first chance for the Human Rights Council to take stock of US counter-terrorism laws, policies and practices since the new US administration took office in 2009.

The ICJ urges the Human Rights Council to seize this opportunity to define clear benchmarks for the protection of human rights in the fight against terrorism.
