Just Security Editors Testify Before Congress

Just Security editor Jennifer Daskal testifying at a House Judiciary Committee hearing about international conflicts concerning cross-border data flows and law enforcement access on February 25, 2016.

When Ryan Goodman and Stephen Vladeck started Just Security in the fall of 2013, they hoped that the site would help shape major national security debates and serve as an invaluable resource for policymakers working in this sphere. Just Security has succeeded in both of these endeavors. In fact, two of Just Security’s editors were recently asked to provide testimony at hearings held the House Judiciary Committee.

Just Security’s co-editor-in-chief Stephen Vladeck testified before the House Judiciary Committee on March 1st at a hearing titled, “The Original Understanding of the Role of Congress and How Far We’ve Drifted From It.” Vladeck addressed Congress’ role in permitting or restraining executive action, with his testimony touching on a number of important human rights issues, including government surveillance and detention at Guantánamo Bay.

On February 25th, Just Security editor Jennifer Daskal testified at a House Judiciary Committee hearing about international conflicts concerning cross-border data flows and law enforcement access. With a potential US-UK cross-border data sharing agreement in the works, this is a topic of obvious importance.
