The Detainees and Counter-Terrorism programme in the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice at New York University is led by Professor Margaret Satterthwaite and Professor Jayne Huckerby. The Center works with human rights organisations, litigators and parliamentary bodies to expose and analyse practices of rendition, disappearances, and human rights abuses of detainees in the 'War on Terror'. They have authored a number of reports on rendition, and Prof Sattherthwaite's articles, which examine rendition and secret detention in relation to international and US law have appeared in leading academic journals.
The Center on Law and Security at New York University's School of Law was founded in 2003 as an independent institute aimed at promoted informed understanding of legal, security and foreign policy issues in the post-9/11 world. It attempts to bring academics, journalists, lawyers, practitioners, law enforcement officers and military personnel together to address these issues. Karen Greenberg, its Executive Director, was the co-editor of The Torture Papers: The Road to Abu Ghraib (Cambridge University Press, 2005), a compilation of declassified documents from the Bush administration relating to rendition, secret detention and torture.
