This article analyses the increasing use of administrative measures, such as travel bans and control orders, in the counter-terrorism context. On the basis of a review of the use of these measures in three selected states (the United Kingdom, France, and the Netherlands), the paper provides a critical assessment of the use of administrative measures in counter-terrorism. It identifies situations in which the use of administrative measures might be justified, and assesses the impact of the use of these measures on the protection of human rights. In conclusion, the paper recommends that limits and safeguards be established around the use of administrative measures in counter-terrorism.
