Migration and Security

In the wake of September 11, 2001, the SSRC Migration Program convened a consultative committee on rethinking the challenges of migration and security. The committee organized a series of dialogues between representatives of U.S. government law enforcement agencies and of Muslim religious and community leaders to identify best practices for collaboration in insuring national security and civil rights. A June 2008 conference in London compared American practices with those in Great Britain, France, and Germany. Each meeting produced a report aimed at improving law enforcement-community relations.
