Targeted Killings Away From a “hot” Battlefield: Exploring the Legal Issues
Tuesday, May 28, 2013 6:00 pm-7:30 pm

Event has expired. Registration for this event is no longer available.

Targeted killings away from a “hot” battlefield have provoked controversy. Although there has been some public disclosure, the topic remains murky and opaque. This panel, composed of leading experts, aims to address two key questions: (1) what are the proper legal standards to guide decisions about targeted killing outside a combat zone; and (2) who should be involved in authorizing or reviewing such decisions.
