Protecting Civil Rights and Civil Liberties in Wartime

Mark Graber, Jacob A. France Professor of Constitutionalism, University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law

Mark Graber examines the problems of how and why the U.S. has often enacted restrictive policies during wartime, and how military conflicts and tensions influence civil liberties and civil rights in the United States. Graber argues that the same factors explain why some rights are restricted, why some rights are expanded, and why some rights are protected during particular wars. These factors also continue to influence contemporary responses to military conflict.
