DURHAM, N.H. -- Former U.S. Senator Gary Hart will discuss national security and public safety in the 21st century at a symposium on homeland security Monday, Sept. 23, 2002, at 10 a.m. in the Strafford Room of the University of New Hampshire's Memorial Union Building.

The two-hour discussion session is sponsored by Justiceworks, a UNH-based consortium dedicated to providing balanced, non-partisan research on issues of crime and justice. It is free and open to the public.

Hart and former U.S. Senator Warren Rudman co-chaired the U.S. Commission on National Security, which issued three reports on homeland security prior to the events of Sept. 11. The reports played a significant role in the George W. Bush administration's decision to establish a national agency for homeland security.

After his talk, Hart will be joined by N.H. State Attorney General Phillip McLaughlin and UNH political science Professor Thomas Trout for an open discussion about national and state policy issues and initiatives.
