In his new SSRN ASSER research paper ‘Restoring trust in the rule of law’, Prof. Ernst Hirsch Ballin, President of the T.M.C. Asser Instituut, argues that, notwithstanding the obvious need of law enforcement and effective prevention, the best possible, principled but also practical response to terrorism as well as to non-violent centrifugal forces can be clear: do not give up promoting the inclusive ideal of a constitution and rule of law for all.” For the full paper, see here.
