    A framework of statutes provides the superstructure of the national security legal regime. Congressional enactments govern and regulate issues at the fulcrum of the liberty/security balance, including surveillance and other intelligence activities, use of force, cyber operations, and emergency powers. These statutes also shape and constrain decision-making by the President. Additionally, the statutory architecture operates in tension with individual constitutional rights and the administrative state’s expansive interpretive latitude and operational capacities. This expert panel will assess the state of the national security statutory regime and its prospects in the context of presidential power; embattled norms; and accelerating change in technology and the global security environment.
