The Justice Robert Jackson Conference On The Planning For Prosecution Of High Level American War Criminals was held mid September at the Massachusetts School of Law in Andover, convened by its dean, Lawrence Velvel. As one speaker commented, this conference differed from most in the academic setting in that it proceeded from the conclusion that crimes had been committed and addressed itself toward accountability and deterrence. At the conclusion of the two day event, participants solicited commitments of work towards that goal and formed a steering committee the ongoing work.

This week, I'm going to play you the first panel, "Crimes Of Torture And Degrading And Abusive Conduct, And Perpetrators and Punishments" featuring three experts in law and public policy Josh Dratel, Christopher Pyle and Phillipe Sands.

The panel and audience questions will take about an hour and a half, and we'll conclude with the next instalment of the reading from the Power and Powerlessness by Susan Rosenthal.
