Beyond the separation of powers : judicial review and the regulatory proscription of terrorist organisations
Roos, Oscar, Hayward, Benjamin and Morss, John 2010, Beyond the separation of powers : judicial review and the regulatory proscription of terrorist organisations, University of Western Australia law review, vol. 35, no. 1, pp. 81-118.
Administrative law remains the key defence against an over-zealous executive arm of government, but administrative law needs to be understood in an international context. Perhaps nowhere is this more apparent than in relation to legislation designed to counter terrorist activities. The co-ordination of terrorist activities knows no borders, and state-centered executive action designed to address the threat of terrorism necessarily operates in a broader global environment. An important but controversial part of Australia's counter-terrorism legislation suite is the power to proscribe terrorist organisations. The authors contend that the scope of judicial review available in relation to decisions of the Commonwealth executive to proscribe terrorist organisations is inadequate and may jeapordise Australia's compliance with international standards, such as those provided in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. Now is an opportune time to reassess the structure and operation of the power to proscribe organisations in Australia.
