A Memorial Day Conversation About Afghanistan

Posted Monday, May 31, 2010

In its ninth year, the war in Afghanistan has now claimed the lives of more than 1,000 American warriors. On Memorial Day, we present a special conversation about the central challenges to bringing an end to that conflict--war crimes that have gone un-prosecuted, a widespread sense of impunity and an absence of the rule of law. "Bringing the Rule of Law to Afghanistan: Problems and Prospects,” a conversation at the City Club with McClatchy News Foreign Affairs Editor Roy Gutman, was co-sponsored by Case Western Reserve University School of Law’s Frederick K. Cox International Law Center and the Greater Cleveland International Lawyer’s Group.
