Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

The week's third helping of security vs liberties!

“The War on Terror, Failed States, and Human Rights in the US and Abroad” — An insider’s perspective by IU Law prof Scott Bates
Room 259 Law School Building, IU-Indianapolis

You may feel that the Nov 16 debate over security vs liberty between Hudson Institute's Herb London and ACLU head Nadine Strossen, or Nov 17 the lecture to the Indiana Council on World Affairs by IU-Indianapolis law professor William Bradford is just not enough. Don't despair! Indiana University School of Law-Indianapolis Adjunct Professor Scott Bates will offer an insider's perspective on human rights and anti-terrorism law around the globe during a special presentation on Friday, November 19. Bates will discuss “War on Terror, Failed States and Human Rights in the U.S. & Abroad” from noon to 1:00 p.m. in Room 259 of the law school building. His lunch-hour presentation highlights the war against terrorism, rights of detainees, war crimes, failed states and how these affect human rights and civil rights. Bates is currently senior policy advisor for the U.S. House of Representatives Select Committee on Homeland Security. The event is co-sponsored by these law school organizations: Amnesty International Student Chapter, Equal Justice Works, National Security Law Society, Indiana Civil Liberties Union, the International Law Society, and the Program in International Human Rights Law. Lunch is provided. Please RSVP by November 17. For additional information, and to RSVP, please contact Chalanta Shockley at chshockl@iupui.edu or 317/274-1917.
