Eisgruber to speak on terrorist rights, Feb. 20

"What Rights Do Terrorists Have?" is the title of a talk to be presented Wednesday, Feb. 20.

Christopher Eisgruber, the Laurance Rockefeller Professor of Public Affairs in the Woodrow Wilson School and the University Center for Human Values and director of the Program in Law and Public Affairs, will speak at 4:30 p.m. in Bowl 1, Robertson Hall.

Eisgruber's research focuses upon constitutional theory, religious liberty, legal philosophy and adjudicative institutions. His book, "Constitutional Self-Government," (Harvard University Press, 2001) defends judicial review and constitutionalism as practical devices for implementing a subtle, non-majoritarian form of democracy. He is a 1983 Princeton graduate.

The lecture is sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs .
