TIME: 5:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. (Reception immediately following).
Contemporary efforts to respond to the threat of terrorism raise difficult questions about the meaning and scope of "prevention" and "preventive" responses permissible under international law. What does the international rule of law framework (the UN Charter, international human rights, humanitarian, refugee, and criminal law) say about preventive strategies such as the use of lethal force against groups and individuals, preventative or administrative detention, preventive intelligence and law enforcement techniques, and increased reliance upon diplomatic assurances? How do the applicable legal principles relate and intersect and with what implications for state practices and policies and the rule of law?
Please join ASIL in co-sponsorship with Oxford University Press, the World Justice Project, Nottingham University, and Málaga University in welcoming this distinguished panel in a discussion of these questions and the findings and recommendations of a recent 3-year multinational, multidisciplinary project on the rule of law and counter-terrorism, convened under the World Justice Project and culminating in the book to be launched: Counter-Terrorism: International Law and Practice, AM Salinas de Friás, KLH Samuel, and ND White (eds), (Oxford University Press, Oxford 2012).
