About this Course: How do we resolve the conflict between maintaining national security and the integral American ethic of protecting civil liberties of every individual? Using case law, the Constitution, legislation, legal theory, Jewish legal perspectives, and case studies, Justice and the War on Terror will analyze different approaches to this vexing dilemma.

Negotiating with Terror

In 2011, Israel set 1,027 prisoners free in exchange for the release of Gilad Shalit. More recently, the rise of ISIS and the murders of James Foley and Steven Sutloff and others have forced us to revisit this heart wrenching debate: Should we pay hefty ransoms or release dangerous criminals in exchange for the life and freedom of an innocent hostage?
