U.S. and Israeli National Security Law: What Can Each Learn From the Other?

Tuesday, March 27, 2012
1:00 PM - 03:00 PM
American University Washington College of Law, 6th Floor
4801 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington, DC


This panel builds on new scholarship comparing U.S. and Israeli approaches to national security. In particular, panelists will contrast American and Israeli law and policy with respect to extra-criminal detention, interrogation, surveillance, and more general privacy concerns arising out of governmental counterterrorism policies and the burgeoning jurisprudence concerning those efforts. Our goal is to identify best practices, and to help articulate the myriad ways in which the Israeli experience might provide helpful lessons for U.S. jurists and policymakers going forward--and vice-versa.
