GUNTHER, Klaus. Os cidadãos mundiais entre a liberdade e a segurança. Novos estud. - CEBRAP [online]. 2009, n.83, pp. 11-25. ISSN 1980-5403. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-33002009000100002.
The 9/11 attacks triggered the development of a transnational security architecture that interferes profoundly in individual civil liberties, in the basic rights of State citizens as much as in human rights of the world citizens. The article draws this architecture, shows how it dissolves traditional juridical categories that preserve freedom and discusses why today it's accepted the priority of security over freedom.
Keywords : transnational security architecture; civil liberties; human rights; terrorism.
