Security and Democracy

In an effort to contribute to the formulation of Canada’s modern anti-terrorism policy, the Security and Democracy research program explored the complex challenges posed by global and transnational terrorism. Completed in 2010, it looked at the role played by institutions and legislation in enabling governments to reconcile the potentially conflicting goals of security and democracy. Research focused on the governance and accountability issues related to national security and anti-terrorism legislation, foreign intelligence, and civil and military relations.
