English In this article, the author analyzes the issue of thebalance between human rights and security. More precisely, she addresses three specific questions:Firstly, should human rights be “balanced” against security per se? Secondly, considering that human rights may be restricted on security grounds in certain circumstances, should the Israeli practice of balancing human rights and security be taken as an example? And thirdly, if one does so, should the Israeli practice also be followed by transposing this reasoning onto circumstances where the state of emergency has become ordinary?
