The following project addresses the legal rights problems regarding the security measures taken in the Danish laws “Terrorpakke 1”, “Terrorpakke 2” and “L62”. Danish politicians have characterized the time that has followed the 9/11-attack in New York as an era of which the greatest threat to the Danish society is terrorism. Terrorism is characterized as unpredictable, diffuse, without a front and obscure. This differs from the image of the enemy that characterised the Cold War period. The enemy had a front and the primarily way to fight it was through foreign policies. In light of the characteristics of terrorism there have from the executive been taking several legislative measures to prevent further terror attacks. These measures are different from the way nations fought the enemy in the Cold War period. The nature of terrorism calls for domestic policies as well as foreign policies. The domestic laws “Terrorpakke 1”, “Terrorpakke 2” and “L62” is analysed in the light of their observance to legal rights. The project concludes that these measures compromise legal rights, which are fundamental rights in the Danish due process, the constitution and international conventions.
