Political Action and Official ResponseFriday, April 25, 2008

State and university officials regularly act to direct, limit, or oppose political activities by those under their authority. Their actions may range from providing opportunities for political expression and preventing unlawful conduct, to surveillance, harassment, prosecution, and violence. This session will explore the range of official responses to political activism in the late 1960s and today. Sponsored by the Columbia Law School Center for the Study of Law and Culture.
