Topic: Counter-terrorism Measures after September 11, 2001: the effect on International Mobility and Migrant Workers in the United Kingdom.
The United Kingdom entered the twenty first century with radical changes to its migration legislations largely in response to the surge in terrorism activities against its interest domestically and oversees. The new legislations enacted to guarantee homeland security from the threats and attacks from terrorist elements have unwittingly extended to impact the lives and migrants including those seeking to enter the country and those already residing there. This study will essentially be assessing how the evolution of anti-terrorism legislations in the United Kingdom since the dawn of the new millennium has impacted the state of migration over the last decade and of course the possible ramifications coming out of this.
Key Words: Migration, legislation, terrorism, United Kingdom
The world witnessed a major shakeup in international jurisprudence following the tragic events of the 2001 terrorist attacks on strategic locations in the United States. A shakeup that has left pundits within the legal fraternity sharply divided on the legality or otherwise in pursuing tough measures in combating future terrorist activities; indeed the United Kingdom and its traditional ally have especially borne the heaviest brunt of criticism emanating from critics of the so-called scorn of international laws perpetrated under draconian instincts. Both countries have especially come under fire for their loose definition of what constitutes terrorism inasmuch as such definitions have informed the promulgation of anti-terror laws.
For instance Human Rights Watch is on record to have called into question the looseness of these definitions and the accompanying laws that come out of them within the backdrop of how these anti-terrorism laws are steadily becoming an impediment to the safeguard of international human law.

The dissertation process can be a very long run to travel. Many students will begin the degree program with a short introduction to the dissertation process; however, most students will not understand the process until the final months nearing completion. These are some things you should understand about the dissertation process.
First, the dissertation process is rarely the same between two different schools – so if you do not know the answers do not ask friends who went to other colleges. Second, the dissertation process is typically designed to take approximately 2 years and include other courses. This is because the dissertation can be literally hundreds of pages long and will many times include a specific study that must be conducted and evaluated. Third, nearly every single college will assign you a mentor or tutor to assist you with the dissertation process and to assist with the complications of the dissertation itself – such as through editing and reviewing the work.

A good dissertation includes clear writing on a topic that is fully defined and easily applied to your degree program. It is essential to develop a topic sentence, a thesis that clearly states the goals of your paper. Your dissertation should be developed, in a number of simple steps that will help keep you on track during the process.
Here is a short list of items you will want to accomplish to write a good dissertation:
• Review course materials for a topic of interest.
• Research your chosen dissertation topic to learn more about the topic – history and current events.
• Refine your topic and develop a dissertation topic or thesis statement –Will your paper aim towards the science community, business world, or a more general audience? Does the paper include research, studies, or surveys? A statement that requires more work than you wanted may not be the direction. For instance, a 40-page dissertation is probably not the appropriate length for a full study to be presented.
