Humane: The Politics and Poetics of Endless War

Friday, September 7, 2018
12:30 PM
Law School 3037

Human Rights in Practice Series: Samuel Moyn, Yale Law School, will ask what is wrong with the forever war – as the post-9/11 campaigns of the United States have been called. For a broad swathe of critics, the trouble is its inhumanity – especially the peril it brings to civilians. What, however, if the opposite is true – and the problem is that the war on terror is the most humane war ever fought in history? He will throw out some early hypotheses for collective discussion as part of a new project on the stakes of making war more humane when there are no strong controls on its chronological or geographical scope. Moderated by Prof. Jayne Huckerby. Sponsored by the International Human Rights Clinic, the Center for International and Comparative Law, and the Center on Law, Ethics and National Security.
