This symposium will examine two components of the "war on terror." One panel will examine constitutionalism in nations that have been at the center of this conflict such as Iraq, Afghanistan, and Russia. A second panel will critically examine the U.S. Supreme Court's enemy combatant cases. The symposium will take place at Drake Law School's Cartwright Hall from 8:45 am to 1 pm in Des Moines, Iowa. Speakers will include Frank Dunham, federal defender for alleged enemy combatants Yaser Hamdi and Zacarias Moussaoui, Pepperdine Constitutional Law Professor Doug Kmiec, and University of Pennsylvania Professor of Comparative Law and Sociology Kim Scheppele. Other speakers are George Washington University Director of Middle Eastern Studies Professor Nathan Brown, Distinguished Service Professor at SUNY Binghamton Said Arjomand, and Washington and Lee Law Professor Mark Drumbl.
