Please join Michael Gilles (JD/LLM '10), Attorney-Adviser for African and Near Eastern Affairs in the Office of the Legal Adviser at the U.S. Department of State, and Howard Wachtel (JD/LLM '06), Senior Advisor in the Office of the Coordinator for Sanctions Policy at the U.S. Department of State, for a wide-ranging discussion on the role that the UN Security Council plays in implementing counter-terrorism measures, their effect on Member States, and the criticisms voiced by some observers that some of its measures legitimize repression in the guise of counter-terrorism. Our panelists will be moderated by Professor Jayne Huckerby, Associate Clinical Professor of Law and Director of the Duke International Human Rights Clinic. The panel will discuss the limits of the UN's ability to safeguard human rights in crisis situations, as well as the due process and humanitarian concerns raised by the UN's counter-terrorism regime. Co-sponsored by the JD/LLM Program in International and Comparative Law, The Center for International & Comparative Law, and the International Human Rights Clinic. Lunch will be provided. For more information, or to RSVP, please contact Ali Prince at email@example.com.
