Abstract/Description

This paper addresses the conflicts of the inherent strains between evidence based policy and contestable evidence based policy under the strictures of a National Security
framework. The shifts in attitudes as to what is acceptable in the application of criminal law to civil offences
appears to follow the trends set in the Anti-Terrorism Acts. A possible counterweight is improved contestability. It is urged that this issue be investigated carefully in order to ensure
better governance in this strained area of civil society.
