SCI Book Forum – The FBI and Democracy

January 15, 2020 @ 12:30 PM - 2:30 PM

| Free

Join SCI for a discussion with Michael German about his new book, Disrupt, Discredit, and Divide: How the New FBI Damages Democracy, which tells the story of the transformation of the FBI after the 9/11 attacks from a law enforcement agency, made famous by prosecuting organized crime and corruption in business and government, into arguably the most secretive domestic intelligence agency America has ever seen.

Michael German is a fellow with the Liberty and National Security program at the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University Law School. He served 16 years as an FBI Special Agent and seven as a civil rights lobbyist with the ACLU. He has taught courses on terrorism and civil liberties at the FBI National Academy, the National Defense University, and the John Jay College of Criminal Justice. His first book, Thinking Like a Terrorist: Insights of a Former FBI Undercover Agent, was published in 2007. He received a B.A. from Wake Forest University in 1985, and a J.D. from Northwestern University Law School in 1988.

Seating is limited. RSVP by Monday, January 13, 2020, to attend.
