Roy C. Palmer Civil Liberties Prize

We are very pleased to announce that Hugh Gusterson has won the 2017 Roy C. Palmer Civil Liberties Prize for his book Drone: Remote Control Warfare. This prize is sponsored by the Chicago-Kent College of Law at the Illinois Institute of Technology, and honors a work of scholarship exploring the tension between civil liberties and national security in contemporary American society. The prize is designed to encourage public debate among scholars on current issues affecting the rights of individuals and the responsibilities of governments throughout the world.

Established in 2007 by Chicago-Kent alumnus Roy C. Palmer and his wife, Susan M. Palmer, the Palmer Prize honors exemplary works of scholarship exploring the tension between civil liberties and national security in contemporary American society. Professor Gusterson will present his book at Chicago-Kent next year.

Congratulations Hugh!
