CENTER FOR ETHICS AND THE RULE OF LAW
Co-sponsored by Georgetown University Law Center & the Center for Ethics and the Rule of Law
The rule of law is under global assault. America ought to be its champion, but the legacy of Guantánamo and its forever prisoners, scarred by torture and held for decades without trial, endangers our country’s credibility as its defender. This event will present new revelations about the origins of America’s post-9/11 torture program and the shocking lawlessness and lapses in professionalism that made it possible. It will also offer a bipartisan roadmap toward closure of Guantánamo, as well as a look at the Guantánamo debacle’s lessons, some of which are now being put into effect in Ukraine as that country investigates mass-scale war crimes.
