[ONLINE] - Guantanamo at Twenty

What is the Future of the Prison Camp?

January 11, 2022, marks the 20th anniversary of the opening of the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, which was established in the wake of the 9/11 attacks. It also marks the start of the prison’s second year under the direction of the Biden administration. So far, the Biden administration has released only one detainee, Abdul Latif Nasser. Thirty-nine detainees remain. What will happen to the prison and its detainees under the Biden administration? Will anyone else be released? Will the prison ever close?

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.
