After the mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, a growing number of national security experts have called for the U.S. government to treat the threat from white-nationalists like the threat from Islamist extremism. But the locus of these efforts, Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) programs which supplement counterterrorism tactics with initiatives to divert Americans at risk of extremist ideologies comes with major civil liberties challenges. Mike German, Fellow at the Brennan Center at NYU Law School, whistleblower and former undercover FBI agent, and David Schanzer, Director of the Triangle Center on Terrorism and Homeland Security and Professor at the Sanford School of Public Policy will be discussants. Lunch will be provided. Sponsored by the American Constitution Society. For more information, please contact Andrew Lindsay at email@example.com.
