Prof. Julian Ku to Present 10-Year Retrospective on International Law and the War on Terror
Julian Ku will discuss “International Law and the War on Terror: a Ten-Year Retrospective” at the International Law in Crisisconference on September 9, 2011. The event is sponsored by the Cox Center at Case Western Reserve University School of Law in Cleveland, Ohio.
The conference is designed to examine both the application of international law in times of crisis and whether these events are pushing international law itself to the brink of crisis, with panels examining developments in Northern Africa and the Middle East, climate change, international economic law, universal jurisdiction, piracy, and the war on terrorism. The symposium features an opening lecture by Ruth Wedgwood, President of the American Branch of the International Law Association, and a midday lecture by the Hon. Richard Goldstone, former Justice of the South African Constitutional Court and Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda.
