Abraham Newman is a professor in the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service and Government Department at Georgetown University, Director of the Mortara Center for International Studies, and former chair of the European Union Studies Association. His latest book is Of Privacy and Power: the Transatlantic Struggle over Freedom and Security (with Henry Farrell, Princeton University Press 2019).
