Since the 9/11 terrorist attacks, there have been unprecedented changes in US government policies toward human rights and civil liberties. This panel will highlight the sweeping use of immigration detention and deportations of Muslims, FBI entrapment of Muslims and other activists, the significance of the official authorization of a policy of torture and extra-judicial assassination, and the failure of the country to pursue any modicum of accountability for those responsible for state crimes. Panelists include Ahilan Arulanantham, the ACLU/Southern California deputy legal director; Asli Ü. Bâli, assistant professor of international law at UCLA Law School; and Lisa Hajjar, associate professor of Sociology at UCSB.
Ahilan Arulanantham: Title TBA
