Internment of Terrorism Suspects and the Australian Constitution

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


There have been recent suggestions that those suspected of terrorism ought to be detained. Internment of those not proven to have committed wrongdoing is not new. It occurred in the United States in respect of Japanese-Americans during World War II. This is notorious. It is argued Chapter III of the Australian Constitution should preclude members of the executive from ordering the internment of an individual suspected of engagement in terrorist activity.
