This recurring series of brief essays is the work of the Jean Perkins Task Force on National Security and Law. While the members do not necessarily agree on a solution or set of solutions, they do share a sensibility that questions of security and questions of law are increasingly intertwined and that the Constitution provides a sturdy and flexible framework that enables the nation to provide for its defense while securing citizens’ rights and respecting international law.
