With this in mind, we are thrilled to announce that our Executive Editor, Professor Fionnuala Ní Aoláin has been appointed UN Special Rapporteur on the protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms while countering terrorism. A quick scan of her writing at Just Security reveals the deep expertise behind her work to ensure that rights and freedoms, especially those protecting the most vulnerable, are central to legitimate government pursuits of security.
