Research output: Book/ReportScholarly editionResearchpeer-review


In any society some people pose a risk to others. For hundreds of years preventive detention has been authorised by governments to ensure people are available for criminal proceedings (e.g. remand), in the mental health area, for quarantine, for inebriates, enemy aliens and sexual predators. This book asks and answers some of the fundamental questions about these regimes.
