2020 Citadel Intelligence Ethics Conference


Legally Immoral Activity: Testing the Limits of Intelligence Collection

February 11-12, 2020

171 Moultrie Street, Charleston, SC 29409

Are there limits to intelligence collection in support of national security? Where, if at all, does a free and open society provide the limits of surveillance with civil liberties? Civil liberties are a founding tenet of democracy, but at what cost? How does a country balance collective security with individual rights? Recently, a Federal Court ordered Apple to help the FBI unlock the cellphone of a terrorist, but company officials would oppose that order, citing concerns over the privacy rights of all Americans.

This 2-day inter-disciplinary conference will examine the legal, ethical, social, economic, historical and political aspects of a western democratic government’s ability to protect its citizens in an era where warfare has no societal or personal boundaries.

Cost (includes lunch both days): General public/$75; Citadel Alumni/ $50; Full-time students at other schools $35; Citadel students, faculty, staff/ $0; Same day registration/$100, check or cash only.

Electronic Checks and credit card payment accepted on-line; printed registration forms with checks may be mailed to Department of Intelligence & Security Studies, The Citadel, 207 Richardson, 171 Moultrie Street, Charleston, South Carolina 29409.
