Coffee and Conversation: Detention, Interrogation, and the Constitution

Tuesday, September 24, 2013 at 12 p.m.

Admission: FREE
Reservations Recommended: Call 215.409.6700 or order online.

Join James R. Jones, David R. Irvine, and other distinguished members of The Constitution Project’s bipartisan Task Force on Detainee Treatment along with National Constitution Center President and CEO Jeffrey Rosen for an in-depth look at America’s pre- and post-9/11 actions related to the capture, detention, and interrogation of suspected terrorists. In the wake of President Obama’s renewed pledge to close the Guantánamo Bay prison—and amidst ongoing scrutiny of detainee treatment there—this timely conversation will encourage dialogue about our policies toward prisoners in Guantánamo Bay, Afghanistan, Iraq, and elsewhere.
