Three NYU professors share NSF grant to study counterterrorism effects

Stephen Schulhofer, Robert B. McKay Professor of Law, University Professor Tom Tyler, and Aziz Huq, adjunct professor of law and deputy director of the Brennan Center’s Justice Program, were jointly awarded a two-year, $387,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to examine post-9/11 policing policies and practices deployed within Muslim immigrant communities in the United States and England. Their empirical study will collect and analyze data on attitudes toward law enforcement authorities in Muslim minority communities in Brooklyn, New York and Tower Hamlets, East London, both of which have been the focus of counterterrorism investigations since September 2001.
