Department of Homeland Security at 10: Past, Present, and Future

On November 25, 2002, then President George W. Bush signed the Homeland Security Act, which established the Department of Homeland Security and called for the largest federal government reorganization since the creation of the Department of Defense in 1947. On Wednesday, November 28, the American Constitution Society for Law and Policy and the Open Society Foundations hosted a panel discussion covering a decade of DHS accomplishments, successes, failures, and controversies, as well as suggested national security policies looking forward. The panel featured:

  • Moderator, Stephen Vladeck, Associate Dean & Professor of Law at American University, Washington College of Law
  • Michael German, Senior Policy Counsel, ACLU
  • Seth Grossman, Deputy General Counsel, DHS
  • Jamil Jaffer, Senior Counsel, House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence
