  • Description: Here is an overview of constitutional issues that arise when searches, seizures, and interrogations occur outside the United States. Global Issues examines prosecutions in U.S. courts that involve evidence obtained abroad and the reach of the Fourth Amendment when the searches and seizures involve U.S. citizens abroad compared with non-U.S. citizens. Cases such as Verdugo-Urquidez and Alvarez-Machain are included, along with sections on electronic surveillance and the reach of the Fifth Amendment and Due Process Clause abroad, plus materials on torture and extraordinary renditions. There is also a short discussion of indefinite detention in places like Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, Afghanistan, and in other sites.
