TERRORISM DB

After a long few weeks looking at multiple case studies across the terrorism spectrum, as well as our comprehensive look at contemporary terrorism policy and governance, we now end the semester with a conversation on the balance of security v. privacy. 

There is no perfect answer – this will always be much more of a public policy balance and art, then a pure science.

Taking in to account a semi-recent Pew Study that looks at the public concerns around the perceived trade-offs between privacy and security (http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2013/06/07/balancing-act-national-security-and-civil-liberties-in-post-911-era/).  I would like your commentary on the issue. Simply look at the question, “how do we as a civil global society, balance our desire for security, and our requirement for individual freedom and liberties?”

Below, I have also provided a few other commentaries – both political and legal – on the topic for your reference, and to assist you in formulating your own ideas.

Share your thoughts in 300-500 words, and provide supporting sources where needed, or where it makes sense-MUST HAVE IN-TEXT CITATIONS AND 3 REFERENCES (PEER REVIEWED ARE GOOD AND CAN USE SOME BELOW)
