Faculty Lecture to Discuss Post-9/11 Policies, Strategies, Apr. 19



George Kakoti, Ph.D.



To conclude the Winter 2012 Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences Faculty Lecture Series, George Kakoti, Ph.D., LL.M., associate professor in the college, will present a talk titled “Truth, Justice, and the State in the ‘Ticking Bomb’ Era: A Critique of ‘Enhanced’ Interrogations, Drones, and Other Post-9/11 Initiatives.”

Thursday, Apr. 19
Noon–1:00 p.m.
Alvin Sherman Library | Second Floor Gallery

Abstract
Since 9/11, a new justice paradigm has emerged that has tilted the delicate balance between public safety and due process further in favor of the former. The new normal includes “enhanced” interrogation techniques against suspects and extra-judicial killings of unindicted enemies in foreign lands. In this talk, Kakoti will discuss the legal, moral, political, and practical implications of embracing such aggressive strategies.

The Faculty Lecture Series draws from the knowledge and expertise of more than 120 full-time faculty members within the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences. The series explores the faculty’s diverse areas of interest in the arts, humanities, social sciences, physical sciences, and biological sciences. These talks are free and open to the public.
