Social Movements, National Security, and Civil Liberties: A Conversation with Professor Barbara L. McQuade
Description: From anti-Vietnam protestors to Capitol insurrectionists, social movements have directly and indirectly affected the practice and implementation of national security law. As social movements continue to influence and impact safety, security, and conceptions of American identity, important legal questions arise: Do we need additional domestic terrorism laws? If so, what should be their limits? Moreover, how do we balance the interests of national security with the protection of individual civil liberties? Are new surveillance technologies creating civil liberties concerns? Can such technologies be used against us by foreign adversaries? The Fulbright Association of Michigan and Northwest Ohio present our Annual Speaker Series with Professor Barbara L. McQuade, who will discuss these questions and the intersection of social movements, national security, and civil liberties more broadly.
