Professor Sahar Aziz was invited to speak at Harvard University School of Law’s 5th Annual Human Rights Symposium. The symposium, titled Justice for Whom? Equal Justice and Equal Protection, will be held on April 1, 2017.

The conference aims to challenge participants to examine the extent to which the pursuit of justice in international and domestic criminal justice has improved or undermined the fair distribution of benefits and burdens.

Professor Aziz will serve on the panel “Equal Justice and Equal Protection in Criminal Justice and Technology” where she will present her research examining the racialization of surveillance practices in the national security context, with a focus on the disparate impact on Muslim, Arab, and South Asian communities in the United States. Her presentation builds on her article “Policing Terrorists in the Community” published in the Harvard National Security Journal.
