IAP 2005 Activity

Individual Rights in a Digital World
Sherri Davidoff, Jennifer Tu
No enrollment limit, no advance sign up
Participants welcome at individual sessions (series)

Recent events have created a push for greater security in America, which may require increased surveillance and tracking of individuals by the government and employers. Where does the need for security begin to interfere with individual privacy rights? How far must we go to protect our nation, and when does security become a threat? The SIPB Lecture Series explores the balance between security and individual rights in the modern world.
