Citizenship, Immigration and National Security After 9/11

On September 20, 2013, the Center on National Security and the Fordham Law Review hosted a symposium on the complex and shifting nature of citizenship rights in a post 9/11 world.

How have the post 9/11 legal and policy battles affected the legal rights of citizens and non-citizens? How can we best understand the tensions between the state's duty to protect its citizens and its desire to protect individual rights and liberties? Has the vigilance about terrorism weakened the protections associated with citizenship, particularly with respect to ethnic and religious minorities?
