International Justice, War Crimes And Terrorism:
The U.S. Record

Conference at the New School University

April 25-27, 2002

How does the national and international community respond to human rights abuses in their own and other countries? What is the response of the U.S. and other nations to war crimes and acts of terrorism?  How does the training of the military instill respect for the Geneva

Conventions?  What has been the role of the U.S. in the evolution of New forms of international criminal jurisdiction?

 "International Justice, War Crimes and Terrorism: The U.S. Record", a three day conference at New School University on April 25-27, 2002, 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."
