Terrorism, Law & Democracy Series Now Available as a Podcast

Originally airing on CKUT from July 10 to September 11, 2002, the series considers a broad range of perspectives on the rule of law in terms of the balance between national security and civil liberties, the Canadian and international dimensions of the war on terrorism, and Canada’s enactment of the Anti-Terrorism Act (Bill C-36) and the national Anti-Terrorism Plan.

The project was based on the proceedings of the conference Terrorism, Law and Democracy, organized March 25 and 26, 2002 in Montreal by the Canadian Institute for the Administration of Justice (CIAJ).

Reflecting on the project 21 years later, producer Khalid M’Seffar noted it was “surprising how pertinent this was and is today.”
