Prof. Julian Ku Examines Legality of US Missile Strikes on Syria in Essay on Vox
Julian Ku, the Maurice A. Deane Distinguished Professor of Constitutional Law, published the essay “Trump’s Syria Strike Clearly Broke International Law — and No One Seems to Care” on Vox on April 19.
Professor Ku argues that the missile strikes violated international law and the UN Charter but that “one important lesson of the reaction to the Syria strikes is that we should all start getting used to this reduced role for the UN, and stop the unrealistic fetishization of Article 2(4).”
The essay appears in Vox’s “The Big Idea” section, which features “outside contributors’ opinions and analysis of the most important issues in politics, science and culture.”
