[ONLINE] - Guantanamo at Twenty-One

What is the Future of the Prison Camp?

January 11, 2023, marks the 21st anniversary of the opening of the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, which was established in the wake of the 9/11 attacks. When President Biden took office, the prison held 40 people. Today, thirty-five detainees remain. What will happen to the prison and its detainees in the final years of the Biden administration? Will the prison ever close? How has the withdrawal from Afghanistan reshaped the legal and policy discussion over the prison?

Join New America's International Security Program as they welcome Karen J. Greenberg, Thomas B. Wilner, and Andy Worthington for a discussion about what is next for the prison.
