Terrorism on Trial
Sponsor
Frederick K. Cox International Law Center
War Crimes Research Symposium
OCT 8, 2004
8:30 AM - 5:45 PM
Location
Moot Courtroom (A59)
The September 11 terrorist attacks and U.S. invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq triggered a seismic shift in the U.S. approach to dealing with terrorists. Previously, terrorists were treated as criminals and tried in federal court or, in the case of the Pan Am 103 bombers, in international tribunals. Now, rather than bringing terrorists to justice, U.S. policy is, in the words of President George W. Bush, to "bring justice to the terrorists" by hunting them down or detaining them as enemy combatants and prosecuting them in military commissions. In this unique day-long symposium, high-level United Nations officers and U.S. government officials, noted prosecutors and defense counsel, prominent journalists and scholars will critically assess the past and current approaches, and offer guidance for future efforts to use law as a weapon against terrorism.

This symposium is an official Regional Meeting of the American Society of International Law and of the International Law Association (American Branch), and is also the annual meeting of the International Association of Penal Law (American National Section).
