In an effort to prevent bloodshed in the age of terrorism, are we sacrificing civil liberties at the altar of security? And is enough being done to reverse any erosion that’s taken place in the shadow of 9-11 and to avoid future assaults on basic freedoms? Achieving the delicate balance between freedom and security has always been challenging. Kennan Rule of Law Initiative Director, Will Pomeranz compares the situation in the US to what’s occurring around the world and also describes the role technology is playing in the security v. privacy equation, in this edition of Wilson Center NOW.

Pomeranz chaired an event on the topic that was cosponsored by the Henry M. Jackson Foundation, the Wilson Center’s Rule of Law Initiative, the Kennan Institute, and the Middle East Program.
