Dawinder “Dave” S. Sidhu, J.D.

Mr. Dawinder “Dave” Sidhu, J.D., is an associate professor of law at the University of New Mexico. In 2010, he was selected to participate in the Pluralism Project’s Case Study Fellows program. He has written extensively on  the intersection of individual rights and national security, in particular the rights of Muslims and SikhsSikhs call their tradition the “Sikh Panth,” meaning the “community (panth) of the disciples of the Guru.” The tradition reveres a lineage of ten Gurus, beginning with Guru Nanak in the 16th century and coming to a clos. with the death of Guru Gob... in the wake of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. His work is concerned not only with the formal legal rights of these communities, but also their experiences in the post-9/11 climate. The research papers that follow explore the legality and propriety of government policies and programs in the national security context as they relate to members of these groups. At the time of this research, Mr. Sidhu was professor at the University of Baltimore School of Law.
