National Security and the Rule of Law; competing interests or complementary priorities?

National Security and the Rule of Law; competing interests or complementary priorities?
Date
Tuesday 16th June 2015
Location:
Windsor Building Auditorium
Description
Since 9/11 there has been much discussion about the perceived 'competing' interests of the rule of law and national security. In light of recent events in Syria and Iraq, these issues continue to be highly topical. In this lecture Jack Straw will reflect on his time in government and how the last Labour government sought to ensure the safety of the UK, while also upholding the rule of the law. He will then consider recent developments, post the 2010 election, and whether the balance of these two factors has shifted in recent years. For further information please click on the link above.
