Emerging Issues in National and International Security (EMININT 2005)
March 21-22, 2005
Washington College of Law – American University, Washington, D.C.
The National Security and Law Society of the American University Washington
College of Law is hosting a two-day professional Symposium in mid-March
to address the pressing issues of the day in the fields of national and
international security. This Symposium will consist of expert panels
equally distributed between the fields of foreign policy, intelligence,
and law, discussing such topics as:
The Emergence of a New Intelligence
Climate Change, Infectious Disease,
and Resource Shortages as Threats to International Security
The Fourth Estate and National
Security Policy: Reporters or Watchdogs?
Personal Information Privacy
in the Post-9/11 World
Homeland Security Law and Private
Whistleblowing and the Intelligence
Torture, Interrogation, and
Human Rights in the Global War on Terror
The philosophy of this Symposium is that 1) the best way
for students to learn about vital national security issues is to discuss
them with experts, and 2) the best way for experts to broaden their horizons
and work together on these issues is to study them together at events
like this. Historically, most conferences in these fields are either
on Intelligence or on National Security Law alone, with their respective
professionals. This Symposium changes that dynamic, bringing together
experts in intelligence, foreign policy, and law, all within reach of
graduate and law students thirsty for this information.
The speakers represent the pinnacles of their respective
fields, coming from five countries and across the United States. They
represent academic experts, senior U.S. government policymakers, and corporate
leaders. They have written books, made laws, established companies, and
otherwise shaped the field of National Security. There is something for
everyone in this Symposium, and few attendees will fail to take something
away from it.
