Conférence : “The border president and the U.S. Muslim ban” avec Elizabeth Shakman Hurd (sur inscription) — Sciences Po – CERI, 12h30-14h30, 18/06/2019
Elizabeth Shakman Hurd, professeure de sciences politiques à l’université de Northwestern et professeure invitée au CERI (Sciences Po), donnera prochainement une conférence intitulée :
“The border president and the U.S. Muslim ban”
Within one week of becoming president in January 2017, Donald Trump issued an executive order entitled “Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States.” The order and a second iteration that followed were enjoined by the Federal Courts. In June 2018 however the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of a third iteration of the ban, Proclamation No. 9645, which placed entry restrictions on the nationals of eight states whose systems for sharing information the president deemed inadequate. Plaintiffs in the lawsuit that followed alleged that the primary purpose of the Proclamation was religious animus and that the President’s stated concerns about vetting protocols and national security were but pretexts for discriminating against Muslims. The latter argument did not prevail, however, and the ban stands. With the rise of anti-Muslim discourse at the highest levels of the American government, how could the Supreme Court find that Proclamation 9645 (the “Muslim ban”) is not about religion? In this lecture Elizabeth Shakman Hurd explores the understandings of religion, and its presumed separation from national security, that characterize current American legal and political discourse.
Ce sera le 18 juin 2019 de 12h30 à 14h30 en salle du Conseil au CERI, 56 rue Jacob, 75006 Paris.
Son propos sera discuté par Daniel Sabbagh.
