The 2015 LENS Conference, Law in the Age of 'Forever War', focuses on the legal issues that accompany warfare in a time when technology, relationships between nations, and the abilities of non-state actors to affect the international stage, are all changing rapidly. Speakers address some of the difficult issues that have come to define modern law as it relates to warfare: targeting, surveillance, home-grown terrorism, intelligence gathering in the digital age, ensuring human rights and civil liberties.
Introduction: Maj. Gen. Charlie Dunlap, USAF (Ret.), LENS Executive Director
Speaker: Benjamin Wittes, Senior Fellow in Governance Studies, The Brookings Institution; Editor-in-Chief of the Lawfare blog
