With the President about to issue an Executive Order on the subject, and relevant legislation pending in Congress, ASIL's Lieber Society on the Law of Armed Conflict is sponsoring a panel discussion on "Law of War Detention." Topics discussed will include who should be detained, for how long, and under what standard of treatment. Panelists will include prominent academic and government experts, as well as legislative experts and representatives of non-governmental organizations. They will debate the merits of the law of war approach, discuss administrative detention in general, and contrast the criminal law model.
