Obama's Civil Rights Record in Foreign Policy

Thursday, October 6, 2011 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Brown Faculty Club

Join the Janus Fellows this Thursday at 12:00 PM for a lunch discussion on Obama's civil rights record with respect to foreign policy. The recent targeted killing of the American-born Al Qaeda operative Anwar Al-Awlaki highlights the tension between civil liberty protections and foreign policy objectives in the Obama administration. The unique nature of the war on terror raises difficult questions about the nature of executive power and the protection of individual rights. Does the Constitution carry weight beyond our borders? Should the rights of Americans and foreign citizens be construed differently? Exactly how much foreign policy should the executive exercise unilaterally? Discuss these questions and more over a free delicious lunch at the Faculty Club.

Please e-mail janusforum@gmail.com to RVSP. All those who RSVP will be sent a few short readings to prepare.
