Security and Surveillance
CSIS has launched the Project on Surveillance and Civil Liberties in response to the revelations of wide-spread domestic and foreign surveillance by U.S. intelligence agencies. In the context of the on-going debate by both policy-makers and in the public about how best to strike the balance between national security and civil liberties, this project seeks to provide analysis, and recommendations to preserve important intelligence capabilities while requiring greater transparency, oversight, and the protection of citizen’s rights.
