Organizer: Foundation for Research on Economics & the Environment. FREE’s conference on terrorism and civil liberties is back once again. This topic was ranked the “most interesting and important” in our 2006 judicial survey, and our conferences on the topic receive rave reviews. Calls for increased national security continue to threaten our civil liberties, and debate over this encroachment persists. How can we best address calls for increased national security? What are the tradeoffs we face? Will civil liberties in the U.S. give ground as they largely have in Europe? Many influential and far-reaching decisions are made from the bench, thus, an understanding of these issues is essential if we are to preserve both security and responsible liberty.
