Civil Liberties & Counter-Extremism
The act of terrorism is clearly a form of crime against humanity that must be eradicated. However, there is a tendency in some circles to see the handling of terrorism and protection of human rights as two contradictory things. The debate arises about which of the two should be prioritized, security or freedom?
In this video, Usman Hamid discussed how we should place eradicating terrorism efforts in the framework of protecting civil liberties and the basic principles of human rights.
Usman Hamid is an activist who has long been involved in human rights advocacy in Indonesia. The video is a part of the CVE Online Course material in the context of the Counter-Extremism Program on the collaboration of Indeks, Qureta, and the Center for the Study of Islam and Society (Pusat Pengkajian Islam dan Masyarakat, PPIM).
