Jennifer Daskal, ASU Future Security Fellow, is a professor and faculty director of the Technology, Law & Security program at American University Washington College of Law. Daskal has written several award-winning articles about the challenges to rights and security posed by the digital revolution. Her current book project, The Right Way to Track and Censor, squarely confronts the multiplicity of harms being perpetuated online, the risks of quick fixes, and the need for affirmative, and rights-respecting, means of addressing them. Formerly, Daskal was counsel to the assistant attorney general at the National Security Division at the Department of Justice, and before that senior counterterrorism counsel at Human Rights Watch. Her writing has appeared in the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Atlantic, and Slate, as well as many top-rated legal journals.
