International Justice, War Crimes and Terrorism: The U.S. Record, seeks to examine the American role in the evolution of new forms of international criminal jurisdictions from a variety of perspectives. The conference will explore how successful the U.S. has been in enforcing among its own personnel, the international standards and conventions that have been incorporated into our national laws and military regulations. Discussions will include the possibility that beyond the reasons offered to justify resisting the development of international forms of justice, lies the largely repressed post-World War II experience of our own violations and atrocities. In light of September 11th, and the atrocities committed in the last century, a session of the conference will be devoted to understanding the nature of terrorism, its definition, and the appropriate responses. It is our hope that the conference will help to advance the possibility of global justice and advance the protection of human rights.
