Safe and Free? The Case Against a Civil Liberties Tradeoff
Devon Chafee from the NH Civil Liberties Union will be unpacking the assumption that the goals of advancing civil liberties and protecting national security are necessarily counter-balanced. Focusing on US counterterrorism efforts in the aftermath of the attacks of September 11, 2001, Chaffee will address the costs and effectiveness of federal national security policies that implicate individual rights.
Devon Chaffee is the executive director of the New Hampshire Civil Liberties Union and is the former legislative counsel to the American Civil Liberties Union in Washington, DC.
