In 2006, the Consultative Council of European Judges adopted
n°8 on "the role of judges in the protection of the rule of law
and human rights in the context of terrorism" and
"the role of national judges in ensuring an effective application of
international and European law".
Those work were carried out on the basis of the replies by delegations
“the role of judges in striking
a balance between protecting the public interest and human rights in the
context of terrorism”.
