WEBCAST–“The Post-Guantanamo Era: A Dialogue on the Law and Policy of Detention and Counterterrorism”

On Wednesday, January 28, 2009, the University of Texas School of Law and the Robert S. Strauss Center for International Security and Law hosted a panel discussion about the task of reforming the government’s approach to military detentions.

The distinguished panel included John Bellinger, who served as Legal Adviser to the Secretary of State and to the National Security Council during the Bush Administration; Benjamin Wittes of the Brookings Institute, author of the book Law and the Long War: The Future of Justice in Age of Terror; and Steven Vladeck, professor of law at American University and coauthor of a brief to the Supreme Court on behalf of Guantanamo detainee Salim Hamdan.

Professor Bobby Chesney, a Strauss Center fellow and visiting professor of law at the University of Texas School of Law, facilitated the discussion.
