The Protection of Homeland Security Information

Wednesday, April 27, 2011
10:00 AM - 04:00 PM
American University Washington College of Law, Room 603
4801 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington, DC


This program is the Collaboration on Government Secrecy's third academic conference on legal issues of major significance such as personal privacy (April 2009) and the state secrets privilege (November 2009). For this conference, it gathers both academic and government experts to discuss the protection of information of current homeland security sensitivity as we near the tenth anniversary of the seminal events of September 11, 2001. They will examine the post-9/11 emergence of "homeland security information" as a distinct information category amid traditional law enforcement information and classified national security information, assess the impact of the Supreme Court's very recent rejection of "anti-circumvention" protection under Exemption 2 of the FOIA in Milner v. Department of the Navy, and also focus on the unauthorized disclosure of government information as a matter of both growing academic interest and prospective civil litigation concern.
