Recent political protests worldwide highlight the seemingly endless struggle between government interests in preventing crime, maintaining public order and protecting national security balanced against negatively impacting individual civil liberties and minority communities. This series of symposia will address the current state of race relations and policing within the broader context of the criminal justice system.
