Abstract: Nowadays, terrorist attacks increasingly often take on an amorphous form, which may cause the society to assume a state of inaction or to inspire a false sense of security. Escalation of terrorist attacks leads to the introduction of new counteractive measures and revision of the existing systems of security. The current reflections emphasise how the essence of human rights ought to serve as a point of reference for organs of the law enforcement and legislation alike, with the aim of preventing arbitrary surveillance of citizens. The paper demonstrates why it is important for counter-terrorism strategy to be continually revisiting this axiom, which leads to increased practicality of regulations concerning identification and effective combating of terrorism. The axiology of human rights navigates towards universal, timeless values which have the capability of uniting people for the benefit of effective preventive measures based on active involvement, reasonable and future-oriented legislation.
