Assessment of Defense and Prosecutorial Strategies in Terrorism Trials in the United States, 1980-2004 (ICPSR 26241)

 

 

Principal Investigator(s): Smith, Brent L., University of Arkansas; Shields, Christopher A., University of Arkansas; Damphousse, Kelly R., University of Oklahoma

 

Summary:

This study created a flat-file database of information regarding defendants who were referred to United States Attorneys by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) following official terrorism investigations between 1980 and 2004. Its ultimate goal was to provide state and federal prosecutors with empirical information that could assist federal and state prosecutors with more effective strategies for prosecution of terrorism cases. The results of this study enhanced the existing 78 variables in the AMERICAN TERRORISM STUDY, 1980-2002 (ICPSR 4639) database by adding the 162 variables from the Prosecution and Defense Strategies (PADS) database. The variables in the PADS database track information regarding important pleadings, motions, and other key events that occur in federal terrorism trials; the PADS variables measure the strategies used by legal counsel as well as other legal nuances.

Beyond Suffering and Suffrage:  The Past, Present and Future of International Civil and Human Rights

A DVD program distributed by the Alabama Department of Education and sponsored by Regions Bank. The program presents an esteemed panel of participants who recount memories of the day; the struggle; and how Alabama, the U.S., and the world were impacted by the bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham on September 15, 1963. The forum was part of the city of Birmingham’s commemoration of the Civil Rights Movement. Led by Dr. Condoleezza Rice, a Birmingham native and former U.S. Secretary of State, and moderated by CBS This Morning co-anchor and O Magazine editor-at large Gayle King, the result was a candid and provocative discussion.

The DVD and accompanying study guide are located on the First Floor of the Ralph Brown Draughon Library in the Media and Digital Resource Lab under call number E 185.61 .C5855 2013.
