Chris Edelson - Emergency Presidential Power: From the Drafting of the Constitution to the War on Terror

Saturday, January 11, 2014 at 1:00 pm

From Washington’s Neutrality Proclamation to Lincoln’s suspension of habeas corpus to Roosevelt’s internment of Japanese Americans and on to today’s wars on terrorism, times of crisis have compelled an expansion of executive power, sometimes beyond the limits described in Article II of the Constitution. In his analysis of these emergencies, Edelson, a professor at AU’s School of Public Policy, argues that post-9/11 executive actions may set dangerous precedents for the future. (Univ. of Wisconsin)
