“The Code of the Warrior”
Sponsor
Institute for Global Security Law and Policy
FEB 10, 2009
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Location
Moot Courtroom (A59)
Why do warriors need a code? Are the laws of war necessary? Are they enough? What can – and what should – motivate combat troops to show restraint in the “fog of war”? These are some of the questions Dr. French will address in her talk, along with related issues such as what returning warriors need and deserve from the society that sent them to war and what can be done to ease warrior transitions back into civilian life. Dr. French will also touch on the question of whether you can separate out questions about the just conduct of war from judgments about whether the war itself is a just endeavor. Is it possible to be an honorable warrior in an unjust cause? (NOTE: This event is NOT for CLE credit.)

Dr. French’s research and scholarly interests include military ethics, leadership ethics, professional ethics, moral psychology, biomedical ethics, and environmental ethics. She has contributed articles and book chapters on present-day conduct of war issues such as defining terrorism, the use of torture, warrior transitions, and the moral responsibility of leaders not to erode values that provide the foundation for restraint and limit the awful scope of war. Her 2003 book, The Code of the Warrior: Exploring Warrior Values, Past and Present, includes a forward by Senator John McCain. Dr. French is Associate Editor of the international Journal of Military Ethics and Associate Editor of the Encyclopedia of Global Justice. She has been a featured speaker at professional gatherings around the world, including Japan, England, Italy, Canada, Norway, France, and Australia, and has participated in the public debate on recent issues in military ethics through articles or interviews in the New York Times, The Chronicle of Higher Education, the San Francisco Chronicle, the Boston Globe, the Toronto Globe and Mail, the Christian Science Monitor, the Baltimore Sun, and other major news publications, as well as appearances on NPR (National Public Radio) and NPR affiliates, BBC radio, CBS radio, C-SPAN, PBS and A&E.
