Building National Security on Inalienable Rights

NATSECDEF is an annual conference organized by attorneys of the Military Commissions Defense Organization, the National Coalition for the Protection of Civil Freedoms, and Witness Against Torture.

NATSECDEF 2017 is the third annual meeting of the minds from the fields of law, community activism, religion, national security, and journalism. The relationship between national security and human rights is a delicate balance, as consistently illustrated through the Guantanamo Bay military commissions. This conference will bring together experts, scholars, advocates, and activists to discuss the most pressing national security issues, how they are being constructed and addressed, and how to maintain the balance between effective security and the human rights protections necessary to a democratic United States.

This event is open to all, although pre-registration is strongly encouraged due to space constraints.
