When War Is Over: A Discussion Exploring the Legal and Policy Implications of Ending America's Longest Wars
Wednesday, May 7, 2014, 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
There is no charge for this program.

In many cases, the U.S. government has relied on the existence of ongoing military operations in Afghanistan to provide legal underpinning for its use of military detention and prosecution, drone strikes and surveillance. But while U.S. forces are expected to withdraw from Afghanistan by the end of the year, and President Obama has signaled a desire to bring the broader War on Terror to a close, these activities are poised to continue even after the U.S. ends military operations in Afghanistan and after the core al Qaeda leadership responsible for the 9/11 attacks has been defeated. This panel discussion will consider the legal and policy implications of the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan in the context of the continuing global threat of terrorism.

Moderator: Jonathan Hafetz, Associate Professor, Seton Hall University School of Law

Speakers: Andrew Kent, Fordham Law School; Capt. William Parker, USN, Council on Foreign Relations; Faiza Patel, Brennan Center for Justice; Ken Roth, Human Rights Watch

Sponsored by: The Task Force on National Security and the Rule of Law, Jonathan Hafetz, Chair
