This week on the show, Zachary Goldman and Samuel Rascoff of the NYU Center on Law and Security discuss their new edited volume, Global Intelligence Oversight: Governing Security in the Twentry-First Century. The book’s contributors take a comparative approach to examining trends in intelligence oversight. And Zach and Sam join Lawfare’s Benjamin Wittes and Bobby Chesney—yes, the same Bobby Chesney who last appeared on the Lawfare Podcast on the day of the Zombie Apocalypse—to tease out the book’s chapters on the role of transnational intelligence oversight, the changing nature of judicial oversight, and how the executive too can create intelligence accountability.

Throughout the week, Lawfare hosted a mini-forum in which the book’s contributors discussed their chapters. You can find the pieces below:
