About the talk

In the previous day's presentations, Drs. Cecile Fabre and Michael Skerker offered us different but complementary perspectives on what intelligence communities may do to defend and obtain secrets. Today's speakers will apply these justifications to particular activities: interrogational torture, and collecting intelligence through technical means. Basic questions on the table include: “Can torture ever be justified?” and “How heavily should privacy concerns weigh when collecting information that’s potentially important to national security?”
