SUAREZ-INIGUEZ, Enrique. About the change in the relation between liberties-security. An essay. Estud. polít. (Méx.) [online]. 2018, n.45, pp.11-25. ISSN 0185-1616.

In this essay, the author analyzes how the traditional relationship between liberties and the security of individuals has changed. From the liberal approach in which basic liberties should be as broad as possible and compatible with the others, it has happened, since the recent terrorist acts, that some of those freedoms are restricted. The author reflects on this problem, and wonders about the restrictive limits of liberties and if it is valid to limit some and not others. He points out that only with the fundamentals in mind, what the classical and contemporary liberals said about liberties and taking into account the current situation, can a well-founded answer be given.

Keywords : liberties; rights; security; restrictions; terrorism.
