This program will include an overview of the political status of U.S. Territories, including the implications of the Insular Cases and Doctrine of the Unincorporated Territory in shaping the inequitable political and economic conditions that exist there.  The panel will discuss recent and historical Supreme Court Cases establishing and declining to overturn the Insular Cases or to confront the arbitrary and unequal treatment of the residents of the U.S. Territories. The program will then turn to the critical role Congress plays in addressing the plight of the residents of the U.S. Territories.
