The Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law is a nonpartisan law and policy institute that seeks to improve our systems of democracy and justice. We work to hold our political institutions and laws accountable to the twin ideals of democracy and equal justice for all. The Center’s work ranges from voting rights to campaign finance reform, from racial justice in criminal law to constitutional and human rights protection in the fight against terrorism. The Liberty and National Security Program at the Brennan Center promotes national security policies that are both effective and respect human rights values and the rule of law. The Program focuses on revamping data collection programs to protect the privacy of individuals; restoring the proper flow of information between the government and the people by securing increased public access to government information; ensuring government counterterrorism policies are free of religious and ethnic biases; and bolstering oversight and accountability of the national security establishment.
