Location:
Federalist Society Teleforum Conference Call

Featured Speakers:
Peter S. Margulies
Edwin D. Williamson
C. Nicholas Rostow

Description:

The United States Government has consistently interpreted the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and other key treaties as not applying to its actions outside the U.S. It is in the process of explaining that interpretation to a United Nations monitoring panel, which disagrees. This process has potential implications for both the fight against terrorists and intelligence gathering. What should the U.S. position be?

Featuring:

  • Prof. Peter S. Margulies, Professor of Law, Roger Williams University School of Law
  • Dr. C. Nicholas Rostow, Director, Center for Strategic Research, National Defense University, and Senior Research Scholar in Law, Yale Law School
  • Hon. Edwin D. Williamson, Of Counsel, Sullivan & Cromwell LLP

Call begins at 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
