International Justice, War Crimes and Terrorism: The U.S. Record, a three-day conference at the New School University, places the September 11th terror attacks in a global and historical context. Speakers will address events in Vietnam, Bosnia, Rwanda, Kosovo, New York, and other places, discussing how the national and international community, including the United States, responded to the devastating events in their own and other countries, through legal, political, military, and other means.
The conference has been organized
by Dr. Arien Mack, Editor of Social Research
journal. "We are defining terrorism as acts of violence against innocent
civilians, which may or may not be part of an officially declared war,"
said Dr. Mack, Marrow Professor of Psychology at the Graduate Faculty and
director of the Social Research conference
series. "The conference presents a wide-angle view on how war crimes
and terrorism are and ought to be dealt with, and reinforces the University's
commitment to advancing the possibility of global justice and the protection
of human rights."
|The conference is free
and open to the public. Reservations are advised,
as space is limited.
