March 23: Policy Intensive to Focus on Civil Liberties and National Security
The School of Public Policy's Policy Intensives with Practitioners Series will offer its final half-day workshop of the spring semester entitled, "Civil Liberties and National Security: FBI vs. Apple Inc.," on Friday, March 23, 2018, from 10 am to 2 pm, in SPP Classroom 175. The session will be facilitated by Kay Ko, community outreach specialist from FBI Los Angeles, Office of Public & Congressional Affairs.
Ko will speak in-depth on the public policy arguments advocating enhanced protections for civil liberties and the competing national security concerns that underlie government efforts to protect citizens against foreign and domestic threats, and how they have presented a conflict of interest from both sides of the argument. The goal of this session is to carefully weigh the costs and benefits to society of each position and seek to identify the concerns most impacting the welfare and security of the American citizens.
Lunch will be served. Registration is required.
