Secrecy, Surveillance, and National Security: A Conversation on Government Accountability

Tuesday, January 30, 2018

The thin line between effective national security and the preservation of civil liberties and democratic rule of law in the U.S. is an ongoing debate that underpins American societal values and ignites the discussion on the place for secrecy in a government accountable to the people. In 2018, as the Trump administration doubles down on its national security strategy, how do we ensure the rights of all Americans are protected? What models do other nations offer that strike the balance between security and privacy? To understand the Trump administration's approach to secrecy in matters of national security, join us as constitutional law expert Sudha Setty unpacks this complex issue and discusses her new book, National Security Secrecy: Comparative Effects on Democracy and the Rule of Law.
