Suspect Communities in Anglo-American Law

Professor Erik Luna

In the UK and USA, counter-terrorism efforts have had disparate impacts on racial, ethnic or religious minorities, with members of these allegedly ‘suspect communities’ subjected to various adverse government actions (eg surveillance and detention). What lessons can be gleaned from British and American experiences? Are the underlying policies and practices consistent with Anglo-American conceptions of the rule of law and individual rights? 


No reservations are required for this lecture. It will be run on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.
Doors will open 30 minutes before the start of the lecture.
